New Poem featured in ‘Island’

Really pleased (despite what the postie did to it) to receive my copy of Island #123 which includes my poem ‘Birds Still Talking‘ along with a host of other great pieces. There’s always such a beautiful mix of poetry and visual arts, criticism and fiction in Island, it’s a great journal and I’m really happy to be in it.

I’ve only flipped through the pages but I’ve already found perhaps my favourite poem in the issue – ‘Matter’ by one of my favourite oz poets Jane Williams, and you can view more of her work at her blog.

Subs are open now for fiction and reviews, though poetry isn’t open again until July. Full details here.
