A collaboration with THEDEEPR. LISTEN HERE
Tethered was originally published as text in Original Clichés Ginninderra Press in 2016.
Two of my pieces have been chosen for Autumn Shorts, part of Adelaide’s Quart Short Literary Reading Nights programme. The works are Your Life ©, a short story, and a memoir piece Holding on.
Professional actors are employed to perform authors’ work. I can’t wait to see how my stories will be interpreted by Patrick Frost!

I’ve been pretty sick all this year and haven’t been out much. So it was a pleasure (if exhausting!) to get along to Adelaide Writers Week yesterday to see Mike Ladd chatting with Adam Aitken and a session curated by Peter Goldsworthy featuring perhaps the best of South Australia’s poets: Steve Brock, Cath Kenneally, Jules Leigh Koch, Louise Nicholas, Jan Owen and Dom Symes. All were excellent in their own way. The surprise bonus was that Peter introduced Ali Cobby-Eckermann who has just won the prestigious Windham-Campbell Prize and we were treated to a couple of her poems. Coincidentally on the way in I’d been listening to Mike Ladd’s Earshot podcast Inside my Mother about Ali’s life and poetry. So much poetic talent in this state!
