Husk # 5 from Valli Poole’s Blank Rune Press is out, and it contains my poem, ‘Bird‘! Featured poet is the sublime Anne Walsh. It’s a bumper issue, so there’s plenty of goodies stacked in there!
Husk#3 (Spring 2018) is now out from Valli Poole’s Blank Rune Press, with a few of my poems, ‘Kidding‘, ‘Not forever (And then it ends I)’, ‘Sampling (And then it ends II)’ and ‘Fallen (And then it ends III)’. Featured artist is Annemarie Szeleczky, with art and words by Annamarie, Leanne Neill, Jan Dean, Jannette Dadd, valli poole, Bee Jay, and the sublime Anne Walsh.
“If there is an aim of the press it is that it features artists/poets/photographers from all walks of life — people who have an ongoing commitment and passion for creativity. In the subjective world of art, this magazine has chosen to present an eclectic mix of art and writing from Australia and overseas.”
