I was a feature poet at Mother Tongue, Brunswick, October 14, and here I’m with Fleassy Malay (performance poet and Mother Tongue host) and Manal Younus, from Adelaide, the other feature poet on the night.
Mother Tongue is one of Melbourne’s most established Spoken Word and Performance Poetry Nights held each month as a ‘space for all to gather to hear women speak. Honest. Powerful. Vulnerable. Passionate. These evenings are deeply inspiring, moving and empowering spaces for us to share our stories.’

love-death-in-castlemaine_invitation-s

Love and Death in Castlemaine
is a collection of my poems about my life in and around Castlemaine since the early 1980s, in a tribute to the goldfields and to those I have loved, and lost.
Sue King-Smith, poet, writer, and previous chief editor at Melbourne Poets Union,
will launch my chapbook – during the inaugural Castlemaine Poetry Festival.
The event is also a celebration of Mark Time Books, the publisher of the chapbook series, and there will be readings from central Victorian Mark Time poets – Ross Donlon, Tru S Dowling, Sue Gillett, Ann de Hugard, Rob Wallis, and Sue King-Smith.
