Bluewren Cantos is Mark Tredinnick’s new collection of poetry just published.  I only came across Mark’s work for the first time when he won the Cardiff International Poetry Prize in 2012, and then had the honour of meeting him at the launch of Australian Love Poems 2013 last September, which he edited. Mark’s poetry is the best kind – it draws you in, absorbs you and then leaves you with a little piece to keep. Having just ordered my copy, I can’t wait to dive in.

And what of me…?

Well, one of my poems – Admission – has just been published in the recently released Poems 2013: Volume 2 of the Australian Poetry Ltd Member’s Anthology. A wonderful start to 2014 – hope it’s a sign of things to come.
