Micro-microfiction challenge

Thrilled to win Day 1 of the Going Down Swinging Micro-microfiction Challenge recently! My piece was a response to the prompt Rebel.

This was a really fun challenge (there’s some gold on the #micromicrofiction hashtag) and my congrats go out to all the other winners and everyone who took part!

Microfiction podcast

What an honour to have my small piece Portals included in a recent Newcastle Writers Festival podcast about prose poetry & microfiction!

This episode features Beth Spencer and Cassandra Atherton chatting about the form and its history here. They also talk about Cassandra’s fabulous Anthology of Australian Prose Poetry. (My copy is dog-eared all the way through! I have so many highlights!)

I really liked what Cassandra and Beth had to say about the white space on the page, and the visual aspect of microlit too.
