Grapple Annual Canberra Launch

Grapple Publishing’s new calendar-based anthology, The Grapple Annual, will have its Canberra launch on Friday 28 November at Smith’s Alternative (76 Alinga Street, Canberra) from 6pm.

I have three new poems included in the anthology, along with a bunch of other talented new and emerging writers.

The evening will include words from Eleanor Malbon, Andrew Galan, Raphael Kabo, Monica Carroll, as well as music from Hannah Blackburn and Paul Heslin.

If you’re in Canberra you should definitely come check it out. Details can be found on the launches’ Facebook event page.

The first issue of The Grapple Annual is out now, and I have three new poems tucked inside!

My poems are titled Sequence #1, Sequence #3 and Sequence #8. And no, they are not exactly in sequence …

Published by Canberra local, Grapple Publishing (founded by the book-smart Duncan Felton), The Grapple Annual No. 1 was officially launched at the National Young Writers Festival in Newcastle, in early October 2014.

The anthology is a cleverly calendar-based collection, with each short story, poem or artwork coinciding with a specific day of the year. Number 1 has over 30 contributors from new, emerging and established writers including Irma Gold, Yolande Norris, Andrew Galan, and Charlotte Clutterbuck.

The Grapple Annual is big, bold, and does exactly what it’s intended to do: grab hold and not let go.

Big congrats to Duncan and the Grapple team for putting together such a terrific publication. So pleased to be part of what I hope will be a long, ongoing series.
