One of my poems selected for inclusion in next Max Harris anthology

I entered three poems in the Max Harris Poetry Award 2007 but didn't feature in the winners' circle.

I've just received an email from the Poetry and Poetics Centre Committee, however.

The good people there told me that they had selected my poem, Egg, for inclusion in the Max Harris Poetry Award anthology.

Apparently the anthology will be published soon.

Of course, I'm absolutely delighted; this was quite unexpected.

When I have it, I'll post a link to the anthology.

My second poetry collection is published... last.

I'm thrilled to report that White Wave Press has published my second poetry collection. It's called 17 poems: one for every year of innocence, and it's available now.

Only 150 imprints of the collection have been created. Each one is numbered individually.

What makes this collection particularly special is that each edition is mailed with a bonus audio CD of me reading the poems.

Think of it as having me as a guest in your lounge room, car, or wherever you happen to be listening.

Sounds scary, doesn't it?

But I'm quite nice really.
