Hey all, I had a great year with poems and stories being published all over the place. Look to Best Australian Poems 2011 (released November 7th) for my favourite peice of the year Others in the Town. I have also had recent confirmations from Cutthroat Magazine (USA) and Gargoyle Magazine (USA) for poems both appearing early in 2012. Other poems appeared on line at Verity La (Aust), and in the great arts pocket hercules Trouble. The Castlemaine Independent also supported my storytelling with a slot, as did the Canadian The Literary Review earlier this year. Not forgetting the second bi-annual Newstead Short Story Tattoo, an extreme success, promising an engaging, sleazy, and wordy future. See www.newsteadtattoo.org for very rare updates– next NSST is 2013. I am always happy to have people send me work for consideration around this event. Check postal address details on this site if you wish to be considered for this event and send send send.
I have been hard at work at the exclusive Bald Hill studio recording poems and stories to be released early next year as a promo tool for my new book. Sirc (Angler) and Dave Thrussel (SNOG, SOMA, Black Lung) have me sounding pretty good with their savvy soundtracks, alongside my gutter-feedback crap. This cd Speed Metal will be available through this website soon, and promises to be an exceptional package of spoken word and sound. As will the new book Self Help and other works, my debut poetry collection. I will be performing here and there to support these works. I would love to see you there. Please keep checking the website for details related to events, launches and product.
Keep on punching hackers
