On the 4th of November, I was one of 20 poets invited to read at Manly Art Gallery. All of the poems responded to images from The Natural Collection, an exhibition of prints showing at the Manly Art Gallery from 19 October 2018 – 17 March 2019. My poem titled “orchid inventory” responded to Rebecca Baird’s Bauer’s ‘Midge Orchid’, pictured left. My piece was also selected to be one of 3 poets from the reading published at Verity La. You can read the poem, along with gorgeous poems written by Judy Johnson and Justine Poon here: https://verityla.com/2018/11/16/the-spirit-of-nature-2018-manly-art-gallery-poetry-alive-reading/ The full suite of poems performed can be found at this month’s Australian Poetry Collective, issue #29: http://meusepress.tripod.com/apc.htm
A new(ish) poem of mine, “Carbon Black”, was featured in The Canberra Times’ Panorama arts section this weekend (November 10, 2018). Editor Lizz Murphy was kind enough to send me a copy. Lizz does a brilliant editing job and I’ve always admired the poems she has selected, so pleased she picked one of mine this weekend.
