Got an invitation from Australian poet Les Wicks to contribute to a website which features WA & SA poets.
The ADELAIDE poets are Jude Aquilina, Christina Bell, Sharon Kernot, Kimberley Mann, Louise Nicholas, Amelia Walker & me.
The PERTH contingent is David Barnes, Andrew Burke, Martin Chambers, Liana Joy Christensen, Josephine Clarke, Suzanne Covich, Lynne DePeras, Kevin Gillam, Helen Hagemann, Louise Helfgott, Patricia Johnson, Trisha Kotai-Ewers, Patricia Moffett, Anne Morgan, Jeanette Nelson, Susan O’Brien, Virginia O’Keeffe, Glen Phillips, Marcella Polain, Flora Smith, Rose van Son, Jayne Surry, Lyndal Vercoe & Julie Watts.
I’ve never met Les face-to-face, but we’ve exchanged a few emails over the years after I reviewed his Stories of The Feet on Cordite.
My contribution to the collaboration is the timely The Mouth (written after walking from Goolwa Beach to the Murray Mouth a few years back.)
Les tells me he’s just had a very successful tour with his new Islands Press collection The Ambrosiacs.
Thanks for the opprtunity to join these talented poets, Les.
The collaboration is HERE.
