I have two spooky poems up at Baby Teeth Journal – they are reprints of ‘Mother’s milk’ and ‘the ghost in your air con’.
And if you like what you read, these poems are from my book Milk Teeth.
Attention Brisbane folk! The Tundish Review Issue 6 Launch is tomorrow evening at Betty’s Espresso & Bar from 7pm.
I’ll be reading some poetry about teen camping trips and Pokemon Go!
And if you feel inclined to read something yourself, there’s an open mic. Wow us with your words and buy a copy of The Tundish Review #6!
I have just released a weird zine / micro-chapbook of new poems called ‘Junk’, inspired by a spam email I received. I was drawn to the peculiar poetry of the probable-bot, who was trying to seduce me with clunky mysterious lines like: ‘I stroked him his chest, abdomen, sponges.’
So I used only lines, phrases and words from this spam email to create 5 poems. I hope you enjoy it!
Super pumped to announce I’ll be reading at Queensland Poetry Festival‘s COUPLET in October alongside the incredible Angela Gardner!
I’ll be sure to entertain you with the weirdest and queerest poems from my manuscript ‘Milk Teeth’. See you there!
On Thursday night I reached a milestone I’ve always wanted: winning the Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize! This means I’ll have a published book ready for you to read in a year’s time, thanks to University of Queensland Press.
Here’s a photo of myself and 2016 Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize winner Shastra Deo. UQP will launch Shastra’s debut collection, The Agonist, today at Queensland Poetry Festival.
