The Poem Observatory on the MX cover!

I'm on the front cover of today's MX (Melbourne's newspaper for commuters, with a daily readership of 312,000), as publicity for the Emerging Writers Festival. Two newspaper front covers in two weeks!

Advocate Press

The Advocate really loved this photo. Not just for the front cover...

...but inside too, with a named mention!

Art is a dirty job but somebody's got to do it


Poetry and art-related photos from last year's November/December trip to France
(Italy report to come):

Poems featured in the carriages on the Paris Metro.

The Paris store that Adelaide & I almost bought out - 1960s briefcases, a stack of old, unused notebooks and school rubber stamps.
Jeanne D'Arc provided much itinerary-guidance...
Stained glass windows by Chagall, at the Reims Cathedral, depicting the Jeanne D'Arc story as following on from other great biblical events and figures.

The Reims Cathedral.

In front of the cathedral, the Jeanne D'Arc statue.

Back to Booktown Western-style

The Advocate's Renee Robinson took a photo of me at last weekend's Back to Booktown in Clunes, the annual book fair that draws 15,000 visitors. Amidst the book-buying frenzy, my poetry stall and I staked out a small corner.
Unable to copy the photo or link directly, but it can be found in The Advocate's online gallery of the weekend.
