Two launches this week

Well it is drawing very close now, the official launch of Confessional Box. On Tuesday 19 February I’ll be officially launching the book with the assistance of Brett Dionysius, Trudie Murrell and John Koenig at Riverbend Books, Bulimba. Remember, this is a ticketed event so if you would like to come along, pop over to the Riverbend Books website and secure your spot. I’ll be joined by a host of other wonderful poets on the night: Anthony Lawrence, Zenobia Frost, Carmen Leigh Keates, Chris Lynch and Julie Beveridge.

A second launch will be happening at SpeedPoets on Saturday 23 February at the Hideaway in Fortitude Valley. Looking forward to catching up with the Brisbane poetry fraternity at these two events.

The folks at Queensland Poetry Festival has also recently published an interview with me about the release of the book. You can read that at the QPF website. There is also an interview on the SpeedPoets website. It is wonderful to have so much support for the release of this book and I have really appreciated everyone’s generosity!

Finally it was lovely this week that a copy of the book found its way into the hands of my high school English teacher and the library of my old school. Here’s a photo of my friend (and cover art illustrator) Maryanne Oliver delivering the book to St Joseph’s College, Toowoomba.

    I’ll see you at SpeedPoets, and will be asking for a signed copy of Confessional Box. I’ll be the one most likely to mention I’m planning on reviewing it on my blog for the Australian Women Writers 2013 Challenge. 🙂
