Flashback Friday – On The Same Frequency

I had such a good time recently on air on The Arts Program on 99.9 Voice FM as a guest presenter, that I'll be doing it semi-regularly. Sitting in the studio is always a beautifully nostalgic place for me, because it takes me back to my formative years and reminds me of how connected I … Continue reading Flashback Friday – On The Same Frequency

I Can’t Get Enough of Spoken Word

I've fallen in love with spoken word. I'm not so interested in acting anymore, but I really enjoy the feeling of performing poetry aloud.

Hear me read poetry – WOL 15th Nov!

I'm chuffed to have been asked to preview my poem for the Weathering The Future project at this month's Words Out Loud in Ballarat. If you can't make it, they usually record the session and post it on the Words Out Loud website. If you can't wait that long, you can hear me read (very … Continue reading Hear me read poetry – WOL 15th Nov!
