Publications so far in 2017

My year has gone well so far!

My first peer-reviewed scholarly publication, a creative paper, A dao of poetry? Non-intentional composition, emergence and intertextuality, was published in The Authorised Theft Papers, the Australasian Association of Writing Programs’ 2016 conference proceedings. This contains ten poems from my PhD project, including crowd favourite A coat of ashes.

Two previously-published poems, ‘am i not?’ and ‘suck faint amity’, were published in the Fremantle Press Anthology of Western Australian Poetry (available as a paperback and as a Kindle, Google or iBookstore e-book).

Three poems, Touched all over, Stupider and stupider and Ungainly, were published in LiNQ 42 ‘Place, Past and Perspective’.

One poem, lamps, was published in Cordite 57 ‘Confession’.
