The Things the Mind Sees Happen – Poetry Chapbook

The Things the Mind Sees Happen – Poetry Chapbook

Very excited to announce my poetry chapbook The Things the Mind Sees Happen will be launched in Newcastle and Melbourne, and will be available for purchase from Puncher and Wattmann on or after 2 November 2019.

In honour of the occasion, my website has had a refresh, and released its previous extremely witty (or so I thought about 15 years ago) URL in favour of my name, as I understand is customary among the youth of today.

There is also an interview with me on the Spineless Wonders website in which I bang on about my writing process, why I like long stories better than short, and gender in Australian literary culture.

Melbourne Writer’s Festival: twitter-length poem on text tickers at Federation Square, 25 Aug – 5 Sep 2010

Thanks to the RMIT Mobile Poetry Competition 2010, a twitter-length poem of mine has been selected to appear on text tickers at Federation Square during the Melbourne Writer’s Festival, 27 August – 5 September 2010.

Apparently in due course it will appear as part of an exciting augmented reality iPhone app.  So: look forward to having your realities augmented, you guys.  Also, good to know it will be exciting.

The poem itself as tweeted by @RMIT_Poetry.
