Poetry and Commentary

I've had a nice start to the year with two pieces published.

My poem: Suburban murmurs / A quiet word with the ever awesome Cordite Poetry Review

And a satirical piece called: Your edgy zeitgeist award winning black comedy: Our readers' report at the equally awesome The Lifted Brow.

Thank the good lord for these incredible Australian publishers keen to push boundaries and provide readers with the most exciting new works around! 

I am so thrilled to have my work supported by both of these journals.


Reckoning - Fantasy story in Dimension6

I neglected to include this publication from April this year! Keith Stevenson curates a killer collection of SFF stories in Dimension6 a few times a year and I was thrilled to get published for the second time with my fantasy / body horror / cli-fi story: Reckoning.

24 Hour Dance Project Melbourne Fringe - A Reflection

I attended a really special event as part of Melbourne Fringe Festival 2018 and wrote a piece called Dancing with Strangers about it for Witness Performance.


Ditmar Award!

In delightful news, an anthology I have a story in: ECOPUNK! Speculative Tales of Radical Futures published by Ticonderoga Publications won a Ditmar Award for Best Collected Work!

It's a great collection of stories by fantastic writers with fascinating takes on possible futures and I'm thrilled the hard work of the editors and all the authors has been recognised in this way.

Double Spec-Fic Anthology Year

In 2017 I was stoked to get TWO stories published in amazing spec-fic anthologies:

'The Panther's Paw' an ecopunk story about a charming narcissist and a socially awkward animal communications savant who have to work together to thwart a deep sea theft, in the very wonderful: And Then ... the Great Big Book of Awesome Adventure Tales Vol 1 published by Clan Destine Press (and the equally fabulous Volume 2 is also available)


'From the Dark' also ecopunk, about an unlikely friendship between an old woman and a violent young man, against the backdrop of future renewal and regeneration in the anthology: ECOPUNK! speculative tales of radical futures published by Ticonderoga Publications.
