My new chapbook – Shorely – is here to download (just click the image) – or if you want the printed version visit Ginninderra Press (Australian purchases only I’m afraid).
Shorely is a collection of recent poetry looking shorewards. More than 85% of settler Australians live within a half-hour drive of the coast – we’re a nation that loves looking at the shore. These poems explore that gaze – from the drowning of a Prime Minister, to a trashed coastal environment, to the trans-oceanic journey of a favourite root vegetable. I hope you enjoy Shorely.
Thanks to everyone who read and commented on earlier versions of these poems, particularly Ross Gillett, editor, mentor and poet. You can find some of his marvellous poetry here.
