Joint winner – 8 ways to look at an octopus

Thrilled that my poem 8 ways to look at an octopus was joint winner of the South Coast Writers Centre / Wollongong Art Gallery Prize, for best response to a painting (or in this case sculpture) in the Ways to Water exhibition . Great to be in such talented company with the other poets and writers.

You can read more about the event here – and read the poem here.
