Thrilled to be included in the South Coast Writers Centre Legacies Anthology as a part of last year's South Coast Poetry Award which I was fortunate enough to win. It will be launched on Saturday 19th March 2022 (3:00 pm - 5:00 pm) at the Coledale Community Hall along with the announcement of the 2022 Poetry Award Winners. The awards evening was pushed back due to COVID earlier in the year.
I'm excited to have a poem in the anthology which is close to my heart on the South Coast and I'm grateful to be one of those asked to share a reading on the day. Photos and winners from the day can be seen here: https://southcoastwriters.org/blog/2022-scwc-poetry-awards?fbclid=IwAR3_vxxC2GS6X5p5XDrEXHX96I2DRNsOJgtubJbrEZYng19ZgdSlK9hz0Lo
It feels a special privilege to lead off the anthology and to share the pages with some wonderful writers. My congratulations again to Denise O'Hagan as the Second place and to Kathleen Bleakley for her Wollongong Art Gallery Award. The anthology will soon be up for purchase on the South Coast Writers' Centre website at: https://southcoastwriters.org/shop
This is the first anthology that the South Coast Writers Centre has compiled since Seeking Horizons in 2014 and features a range of poems by invitation, award and open submissions. My special thanks to the editors Dr Sarah Nicholson & Lore White for including my work in the anthology. Come along if you are able and hear some of the region's best poets perform their work.
