confessional box – launch event details

The time has finally come to announce details for the launch of my debut full-length collection Confessional Box.

Running to approximately 80 pages, the book features the best of my two shortlisted Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize manuscripts and is being published by Tasmania’s Walleah Press.

There will be two launch events taking place in February, and here are the details for each:

QPF Poetry Series I at Riverbend Books

Date: Tuesday, 19 February 2013

Where: Riverbend Books, Oxford Street Bulimba

Time: 6pm for 6:30pm

Cost: $10 (bookings essential)

The wonderful Brett Dionysius is launching the book at this event, and I will be performing a selection from the book alongside some other very fine poets. You can find out more about the line-up and ticketing by visiting the Riverbend Books website.


Date: Saturday 23 February 2013

Where: The Hideaway, Fortitude Valley

Time: From 2pm

Cost: Gold coin donation

The book will be launched by Graham Nunn at this event, copies will be for sale and I will be performing a selection of poems alongside the traditional Speedpoets features and open mic poets.

How to buy and order

Books will be for sale at both of the launch events – but if you can’t make it along, they are also available to order direct from Walleah Press. Cost is $16 each or $18.50, including postage.

Anyone who has a Walleah Press publication in their collection will know that these are lovely quality books. Making this book even more special is the cover design, which features some original Maryanne Oliver artwork, combined with the graphic design magic of Jessica Fazakarley.

To celebrate the launch, all books will come with a limited edition Maryanne Oliver bookmark. Maryanne created the ‘key’ artwork for the book’s cover and is a well known Brisbane illustrator and artist who has exhibited her beautiful work internationally and domestically. Bookmarks will also be signed by the poet and artist.

Please contact me if you would like further information about any of the above details.

A final word…

Putting together a book like this is a big effort and there are many people who have assisted throughout the process. I thank you all for your belief, encouragement and support. To the readers, I hope you enjoy reading these poems as much as I have enjoyed writing them. It is a wonderful feeling to release such a large collection of poems into the world!
