Another Lost Shark in the news

My head is well and truly swimming with poetry… QPF 2010 was an unforgettable weekend, but more on that later… tonight is for dreaming.

There is however one thing I would love to share with you all. Poetry as we all know rarely gets alot of airtime in major newspapers, so it was a rush to be featured in a 6 page spread – Thrill of the Quill – in The Courier Mail’s glossy weekend liftout, QWeekend on Saturday (Aug 28).

In the article, Frances Whiting talks to QLD stalwarts, Bruce Dawe and David Rowbotham; one of the fresh young faces in Brisbane poetry, Zenobia Frost; UQP Poetry Editor, Felicity Plunkett; editor of Jacket Magazine, John Tranter and myself to get the lowdown on the poetry scene past,  present and future.

Here’s a link to download the article – Poetry is not Dead_Courier Mail – Qweekend_28 August 2010.
