Cordite 91: Monster

A big thank you to Nathan Curnow, editor of Cordite’s Monster issue, for selecting my poem ‘Thursday Night, 1979’. Like many of my poems it is dark and domestic – fragments of moments recalled in the haze that is a childhood. I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the issue!

Poetry@Clancy’s May 20

I’ll be heading down the M1 next month to the Gold Coast Hinterland for an extended poetry reading. Hosted by the Calanthe Collective, I’m the guest poet on the bill for the May session of Poetry@Clancy’s.

If you live on the Gold Coast and would like to come and hear me read from Confessional Box and Tourniquet or pick up a copy of both I’d love to see you there.

I’m told these nights can book out so if you are interested, here’s everything you need to know and book:

Date: Monday 20 May 2019

Venue: Clancy’s Irish Bar and Restaurant, 2 Main Street North Tamborine

To book: Call 07 5545 1531.

The event starts at 6pm with readings underway at 6:30pm. There’s also a ‘Blackboard Poets’ section where you can bring along one of your own pieces to read.

Hope to see you there!

Couplet

On Friday evening, I joined Lionel Fogarty for Couplet at Brisbane Square Library, courtesy of the Queensland Poetry Festival.

I read a trio of ‘Toowoomba poems’ from my new book Tourniquet, a couple of new poems from my recent travels in South East Asia and I debuted a longer extract of a new work – The Coriolis Effect.

My thanks to those who came to listen, and especially to those who felt moved by The Coriolis Effect and came to share their thoughts with me afterwards. It’s always great to hear that sort of feedback on a new piece’s first outing. If my words are giving people the feels, then my words are doing their job – and well.

The next little while will be spent refining The Coriolis Effect further, and I hope in the future to be able to perform the entire suite of poems.

Here are a few pics from the event.
