From the Vaults: QWeekend

Back in August of 2010, Frances Whiting interviewed me for a story in the Courier Mail’s QWeekend. Standing amongst such heavyweights as Bruce Dawe, David Robotham, Graham Nunn, John Tranter and Felicity Plunkett, I represented Emerging Poets; it was thrilling — and definitely nerve-wracking. But it was a lovely article: a six-page spread that came out just in time for the 2010 Queensland Poetry Festival. Russell Shakespeare photographed me in Toowong Cemetery (about a year into my graveyard obsession), and kindly allowed me to reproduce some of the photos that didn’t make it into QWeekend.

You can still download and read the whole article: The Thrill of the Quill.
