I have some new zines up on my Etsy store! Dealing with Rejection in the Arts (made for the FotP2021 Zine Swap) and The Zinester’s Art of Folding (made for Upstream Festival 2020).
Oh hey, cool zine news: I’m gonna have a virtual stall at Sticky Institute’s Festival of the Photocopier online! The site will launch on 20th February at 12pm AEDT at fotp.online. The website will be live for at least a year post-launch, which is really exciting for those who can’t pop by this weekend.
See you online, zinesters!
The Upstream Zine Fair is happening on Sat 7 March, 5pm to 9pm in Wodonga, Victoria. I’ll be hosting a workshop on alternative/unique ways to fold your zines and I’ll also have a zine stall! You’ll be able to buy most of my zines (and if you can’t make it to Wodonga, you can buy them on Etsy or Gumroad).
If you also want to table and sell your zines, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please come zine with me!
Come say hi to me and buy some zines at Festival of the Photocopier 2020!
February Sat 8th & Sun 9th
12-5pm @ Meat Market, North Melbourne
I’ll have a new spooky chatterbox zine and plant zine available, as well as old favourites like Ikea Blackout Poetry and limited copies of my book Milk Teeth!
Then on Tuesday 29 October, my story ‘Bodies Needed’ will be released as part of the audio series Urban Internet Myths at Digital Writers’ Festival, voiced and produced by Rudi Bremer. I can’t wait for you to hear the spooky, kooky and weird episodes in this series!

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!
