What's Happening in March and April?
The artists’ run initiative I’m involved with, Mounted ARI, presents their first exhibition for 2020.
Above the Beyond - No Horizons — amazing aerial landscape photographs by Philip Bell.
Opening at 2pm this Saturday 14th of March at 80 Paterson Rd, Springwood NSW. Everyone welcome!
I was lucky enough to be ‘paired’ with Philip last year for Mounted’s collaborative The artist and the Writer exhibition project and wrote a poem based on his photograph of the Murray River in crisis. Philip’s work pushes the boundaries of landscape photography and this exhibition promises a unique perspective on Australia’s interior.

Excited to be a part of this project with my piece, ‘Skin and Bone’ performed in the Clearways II program in April. For more info and booking details check out www.voicesofwomen.com
Aussie Writers’ WriteOn Festival
Friday 24th to Sunday 26th of April, in Canberra. I went to this Festival for the first time last year and it was a blast. Small group workshops, panels, and the opportunity to mingle and chat with other writers, poets and songsters across the experience spectrum was a creative treat. It was also fun and friendly, and this year offers a great new line up with screen writers, performance poets, crime writers, children’s writers and more — something for everyone! They also run a ‘Tales after Dark’ story reading event on the Friday night before the Festival starts. I’ve a story in their 2020 anthology which will be launched at the Festival, too :)
