Brisbane New Voices III

I’m really thrilled to be able to finally announce that a collection of my poetry will be published in the next volume of Brisbane New Voices.

I’ll be sharing the book with fellow poet Carmen Keates. Both of us were on hand to read a short set at last night’s Back Room gig at Confit Bistro, and I’m now really looking forward to working through the process of publication. Most of the pieces will be drawn from my recent manuscript “The Lost Art of Penning You a Love Note” More info as it comes to hand will be blogged about here!

Last night’s event was fantastic with amazing sets from Brett Dionysius and Pascalle Burton, and all the while some brilliant art pieces were being created by the awesome Tricia Reust. Highly recommend this event and hope that it returns for more in 2012.

1st prize 2011 USQ Poetry Competition

I am excited to share that my poem ‘Awakening’ has won the 2011 USQ Poetry Competition. This is the second consecutive year that my poetry has won this competition. As I couldn’t be there for the presentation a recording was made of me reading my poem and from all accounts this worked wonderfully. I will post details soon when they are available on the site.

SpeedPoets Open Mic poem

Here is the poem I read in the finals round yesterday:

Gone#2

I travel north
to be in the places
where you have been

drinking alone in the surf club

lying awake
listening to the ocean
making conversation

missing you

missing you

missing you
