New poems in 2018 Australian Poetry Anthology and Impossible Archetype

It’s been a good year for poetry publishing! I have two new poems out this month. My cento ‘after-images’ after Dorothy Porter was recently published in the 2018 Australian Poetry Anthology, with thanks to the editors Jill Jones and Bella Li for picking it up. The anthology is a comprehensive survey of what has been published in Australian poetry this year. You can grab your copy here.

I also made my international debut recently, with my poem ‘The Weekly’ getting published in queer poetry journal Impossible Archetype. Once again, happy to share the poetry pages with the always lovely Stuart Barnes.

Edited by Mark Ward, Impossible Archetype is a fantastic collection of diverse and exciting poetry by queer writers from all over. All issues are free so be sure to check out the back-catalogue and considering sharing with friends and fellow poets to support the journal.

Stay tuned for some more poetry publishing news from yours truly very soon!
