Queensland Poetry Festival!

Utterly astounded, joyous too, to let you know that I’m a performer at this year’s QPF!

I’m living in a high state of anticipation – here’s just a smidgen of info for now – but if you’re going to be in Brisbane August26-28th then I’d love to see you there.

There’s an interview with me conducted by John Wainwright – just got to ‘program’ and then ‘artists’ – and while you’re there check out the host of other talents appearing over the weekend.

Ocean Hearted Flood Relief Project

Things are so far beyond tough in Queensland (Australia) at the moment, with widespread devastation due to flooding. I wanted to alert your attention to something Queensland poet Graham Nunn is doing at his site, the Ocean Hearted Flood Relief Project.

Basically, Graham is donating his book sales and and matching each sale with a personal donation. It’s one of the best collections of Australian poetry around too, so have a look at the link above and see if you can help.
