Some Sad News

I’ve recently come across some sad news at the MPU website; Melbourne Poet John West has passed away.

I first came across John’s brilliantly honest & human poetry as one of the editors of Egg (Poetry) where we had published a few of his poems over the years. As a reader I’ll miss his wit and confident verse, as a writer I’ll miss the new opportunities for him to inspire me.
