Brisbane Launch of Tattooing the Surface of the Moon.

I'm very excited to say that this coming Thursday I'll be launching my brand new book in Brisbane! My publisher, Small Change Press are based in Brisbane so I'm really looking forward to catching up with the two fine poets behind SCP, David Stavanger and Graham Nunn. I'm very grateful for their faith in me.
I have very fond memories of Brisbane from my involvement with the Queensland Poetry Festival and my performance at the Love Poetry, Hate Racism event with The Mime Set. It's also where my friendship blossomed with such golden souls as Mandy Beaumont and Giselle Di Paolo.
The launch is at the Queensland Writers Centre on the 23rd October, 6.30pm.

I'm also performing at the State Library of Queensland on Sat 25th October. This event is the State Final of the National Poetry Slam. I'll be doing a set between the poets slamming it out for their chance to represent QLD at the National Final being held at the Sydney Opera House.

If you're in Brisbane, I hope to see you sometime this weekend.


ps Melbourne launch of Tattooing the Surface of the Moon is on Thursday Nov 6th at Bar Open. More details here soon!

I hate being so young. Give me two years and I can drive, you should come back to Brisbane then (I'm Gold Coast, by the way).

Have fun Saturday :)
