SALA Audiobook Project

I was very honoured recently to be included in a special project initiated by radio PBAFM in Salisbury SA to produce an audio book featuring the work of South Australian poets. The collection was released as part of the local SALA festival and highlights the work of sixty poets.

I attended the launch event on February 19th at the offices of radio PBAFM along with around thirty fellow poets. The collection is available in USB form through PBAFM.

My First Solo Collection has been Published!

Following publication of my first solo poetry collection, ‘Time Like Coins,’ two separate launches were held, one in Gawler SA and one in Mannum in the Murraylands. Thank you to those who supported these events.

The book is now available through online bookstores, from my publisher, Ginninderra Press, or signed copies directly from me. Contact me for more information.

Reflecting on 2018

Wow! What a year it’s been! I made a promise to myself at the beginning of 2018 that I would put more time into my writing and it seems to be paying off (…well, not necessarily in dollars, but in adding credentials to my CV!)

It started with finding the courage to submit my first solo poetry collection to Ginninderra Press for consideration, and receiving that much anticipated letter of acceptance. Woohoo!

The book is due for release on January 1st. What a way to start 2019!

I have also had 3 poems published in the Valley Voices Literary Review, two in Voice of Eve, one in Pure Slush - Seven Deadly sins ‘Sloth’ edition and another one accepted for the upcoming ‘Wrath’ edition.

Two of my poems (both from my collection) were accepted for ‘Well-Versed,’ an initiative of radio PBAFM as part of the 2019 Fringe event.

This year, for the first time, the Mannum SALA (South Australian Living Artists) exhibition included one of my poems presented as an art piece. What a buzz seeing my work up there amongst that of some incredibly talented artists.

I officially registered my ‘Into Words’ writing service and personalised poetry service as a business. My aim is to promote this further in 2019.

I have had a fantastic year and hope that my writing success will continue.

Whatever your dreams are for the future, there is no better time to start putting them into action. If I can do it, anyone can!
