New short story: ‘The Offering’

I loved writing this poetic short story ‘The Offering’, published at Overland as their Friday Feature, supported through Copyright Agency. Many thanks to Claire Corbett for accepting this piece. 💚

‘I wandered for hours, listening to their murmurs, their poetry, their dreams. What do plants dream of? Half moons and blue rain, soft breezes and rainbow sunsets, bubbling rivers and purpled daybreak.’

Overland poetry reviews

This month I had the pleasure of reviewing 6 poetry collections for Overland Journal! These included new work by Franny Choi, essa may ranapiri, Tricia Dearborn, Zenobia Frost, Caitlin Maling and aj carruthers.
