This year I was lucky enough to be invited to be a guest poet at the 2012 WA Poetry Festival which begins this Friday 17th August 2012. The event is run by WA Poets Inc and this year was coordinated by my poet friend Karen Murphy. The other guests chosen for the festival include Kate Wilson, Kevin Gillam, Andy White, Steve Smart, Maitland Schnaars, and Tineke Van Der Eecken. You can find out more about them here.

Last week I had the good fortune of being featured in three local Community Newspapers: the Southern Gazette, the Stirling Times, and the Eastern Reporter. The interview was organised for me by my poet friend Sue Clennell who is also part of the WA Poets Inc committee which continue to work hard at promoting poetry in WA. If you have time, check out two of the articles from the newspapers in this post.

See you at the WA Poetry Festival!
