I write free verse poetry. I am a cafe poet, with Australian Poetry, at Gilbert's of Mittagong until November 2012. I am employed at South Coast Writers Centre 2011-2012+. I am a member of the FAW Southern Highlands chapter. I enjoy workshopping poetry with other writers. I am doing my honours at the University of Wollongong in English Literature. I will complete this study in 2012. My study focuses on contemporary poetry of the Southern Highlands and the Shoalhaven, exploring how the poetry relates to place.
