|Preferred public name||
I have published two books of poetry and art with the artist, Lindi Forde (https://www.lindiforde.com/). I have degrees from Flinders University, Oxford and RMIT. My profession is in the field of organisational dispute resolution.
|Why Do You Write?||
I love the way poetry helps me pay attention to the world about me and the memories and experiences of my life. When a poem comes together, creating itself really, I find that one of the most thrilling joys.
|Have you been published before?|
|If yes, where have you been published?||
Convex Press. Self published
|Link to your published work|
|What are you currently working on?||
I am part of a Writers Victoria online poetry workshop with Andy Jackson. I produce 1-2 poems each month for his critique. Lindi Forde and I are planning a third publication of her art and my poetry.
|What are your long term goals?||
Further publications. I would love to win a prize, or get an honourable mention! I can see myself writing until I can't.
|What is your writing regime?||
Monthly expectation of 1-2 poems, helped by being part of the Writers Victoria online poetry workshop. I mostly write in the mornings but carry around with me a notebook and pencil. Writing in noisy crowded coffee cafes is often the best place to get pencil to paper!
