I dig getting parcels and such in the mail, and yesterday was an especially fruitful day. My friend and fellow poet, Derek Motion’s first collection of poetry arrived. ‘Lollyology’ has poems that have appeared in esteemed writing journals such as the ilk of Overland, The Best Australian Poems 2010 and Cordite Poetry Review, to name but a few. From what I’ve read so far, it’s a stunning début. And here’s where I say ‘go buy a copy’ [buy a copy!]
Also in my mailbox was the latest edition of ‘Newswrite’ – the New South Wales Writers’ Centre magazine. I was asked by the lovely Kirsten Krauth to write about my café poet experience and it’s a sprawling double page spread I’m really proud of. Here is a glimpse of how it looks – nice, huh?
And so that is my media tartage for this week, but not this month. Standby for a glossy magazine spread (gotta love that word) in one of Brisbane’s high-end publications. It’s all systems go at poetry central!
