  1. Zeoobia Frost is one of the world’s finest performance poets and her poetry is destined to become part of the great canon of English Literature. Her intelligence, grace and humour along with her tremendous craft and understanding of language combine to create a truely unique and remarkable talent. Already recognised in Australia as one of our greatest cultural assets, it is only a matter of time before Zenobia is hailed universally as this millenium’s first truely great poet and author.

    I just wanted to say thankyou for your wonderful post regarding the current QLD election. I was very disillusioned after the results. But then I found a link to your page that someone had posted on Facebook. After reading your post, I feel much stronger and I understand that I must fight on for all my friends.

    Thank you,
