In other literary news - three of my poems have just been published by ETZ - Donnethorne Street Press. Thanks and hearty cheers to Pete Spence. I'm in very good company, published alongside Louis Armand, Jill Jones, Rhyll McMasters, Toby Fitch and Cameron Lowe. I've also been invited to submit to ETZ's next edition for which I'm very grateful.
A special thank you goes to poet Chris Barron. Hi Chrissums.
Arena Magazine in Melbourne have agreed to publish three of my poems over the 2014 year. That's a big achievement - thank you very much Arena!
Today my poetry blog Autopirate passed 10,000 hits! Wackadoo...
A pre-press copy of 5 poems being published by Journal of Postcolonial Text is available from me. Contact me if you're interested. The next volume of Journal of Postcolonial Text is close to release.
Additionally, thanks go to C Derick Varn of "Former People: Journal of Bangs and Whimpers" for publishing two of my poems. Cheers!
There are suggestions that 21D magazine might be publishing my poems too, alongside Verity La, Southerly, the US-based Black and Blue Press, and Australian Poetry amongst others.
Beyond that I've turned my pen to short fiction on sydneyspleen.blogspot.com.au, am continuing a personal journal of my self-directed adult neurogenesis on Facebook - hopefully to be released as a book in the area of neuroplasticity from the point of view of "the person on the street" who practices it successfully.
Longer term goals revolve around the launch of Australian Latino Press and commencing my Masters in either Public Health or Health Communication at Sydney University. And having a good time.
Until the next update - please keep well and enjoy season!
