In Summary: 2017 Publications

2017 was my most productive writing year to date, and thanks to some intensely focused study I now have more than half of my next poetry collection written, here’s hoping 2018 proves just as prolific! Below is a list of my publications in 2017:

Cordite Poetry Review: ‘(after)HER: dating app adventures’
Pressure Gauge Press: ‘when I am first social without you’
The Lifted Brow: ‘We’re All Going on a Summer Holiday’ + ‘Summer Holiday Mixtape’ The Suburban Review: ‘This Is What Makes Us’
Tincture Journal: ‘Some Days’
Verity La: ‘Hello Dolly’

‘Hello Dolly’ now online at Verity La

The lovely people at Verity La have published my memoir ‘Hello Dolly’ which is about dealing with grief and the eccentricities of family. You can read it in full here. Like Tincture Journal, Verity La publish challenging, courageous, and thoughtful writing by a diverse range of emerging and established writers. So while you’re there have a look around and read some of the other brilliant work on the website.

 

‘Some Days’ now online in Tincture Journal

The lovely people at Tincture Journal have made my poem ‘Some Days’ (published in issue #17) available for free online for your reading pleasure. Read it in full here and while you’re there, read some of the other free content available. And then subscribe, not that you will need any convincing.

‘Some Days’ New Poem in Tincture Journal

Once again, the lovely people at Tincture Journal have published one of my poems. Many thanks to the wonderful Stuart Barnes (poetry editor) and Daniel Young (editor) for their continued support, not only of my own work, but that of many other wonderful emerging, and established voices.

My prose poem ‘Some Day’s features in the latest issue #17. I’m really pleased to see this poem published, the poem is somewhat of an ode to returning home, to the place you grew up. Partly inspired by the Nelson Mandela quote: ‘There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.’

Buy a copy of Issue #17 to read the poem and many other great pieces of writing. Or even better, subscribe and get a whole year’s worth of wonderful writing for the price of a single book.

In Summary: 2016 Publications

A short summary of my publications in 2016, coming a little late into the piece I know! 2016 was a quiet year for me, writing wise, but I am pleased that I managed to break into three new publications that I respect and admire; Overland, Going Down Swinging, and Hecate. I also had work published in two of my favourite journals; The Lifted Brow, and Tincture Journal, both of which put a great emphasis on publishing voices that aren’t always heard in the mainstream. Below are links to either read or buy the journals. Happy reading!

November: The Small Violences published in Overland.

November: Why Do We Close The Door On Domestic Violence? published in Hecate 41.1 & 2.

September: Sometime Around Midnight published in Going Down Swinging #37.

June: The Art Of Breaking published in The Lifted Brow #31.

March: field officer no. 302 published in Tincture Journal #13.

The great news is, I already have three publications lined up this year. I think this is a good start to what I hope will be a productive writing year!

New Poem in Tincture Journal Issue 13

The lovely folk at Tincture Journal have once again published a piece of my writing. My poem ‘field officer no. 302’ appears in Issue 13 alongside many other wonderful pieces of writing. If you haven’t read Tincture Journal yet then this is a great issue to start with. There is a diverse range of quality content from – you guessed it – a diverse range of quality contributors!

If you’re looking for a taste-test then start with this ‘Two poems and an interview’ with Alison Whittaker, 2015 winner of the black&write! fellowship. Alison’s debut poetry collection Lemons in The Chicken Wire is out now with Magabala Books.

I also enjoyed reading Megan McGrath’s new column: Making Noise, in which Megan talks about early-career literary jealousy (I know plenty of writers who can identify with this – myself included!) and how to harness it in a positive way. Megan was a fellow winner of the 2015 QLD Premier’s Young Publishers and Writers Award.

Some other highlights in this issue of Tincture include David Stavanger’s poem ‘Life Is(n’t)’, Maria Arena’s short story ‘The Obliteration Rooms’ and Kathy George’s memoir ‘Read To Me’.

If you would like to support a wonderful literary journal (who wouldn’t?) then do consider subscribing to Tincture, or at the very least, grab yourself a copy of the latest issue here. Many thanks to Poetry Editor Stuart Barnes and Editor Daniel Young for picking up my piece and continuing to support great writing talent.
