Grapple Annual Reviewed

The Grapple Annual has received a glowing review via Katelin Farnsworth over at The Writers Bloc.

Farnsworth describes the inaugural issue as “a fantastic read” and “an excellent new anthology, with a real mix of writers and artists involved”. Even my humble little poems get a mention!

You can read the entire review over on The Writers Bloc website.

This great review comes hot on the heels of The Grapple Annual’s win in the Express Media Most Innovative New Project Or Work By Young People 2014 award. Talk about a tops week for Grapple!

Once again I’d like to congratulate Duncan Felton and his team on putting together such a cool anthology. Be sure to buy a copy of The Grapple Annual over at the Grapple Publishing website.

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.
