I am pleased to announce that I will be one of the ten lucky recipients of WA Poets Inc (WAPI) 2021-2023 Four Centres’ Emerging Writers’ Program. The program is supported by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries, and is led by Fremantle Press. The goal is to develop a poetry manuscript for publication. I look forward to this journey with nine other writers, that I admire and aspire to. They are: Kaya Ortiz, Alan Fyfe, Yvonne Patterson, Jurarte Francesca Sanaitis, Jaya Penelope, Adele Aria, Vanessa Karas, Noemie Huttner-Koros and Saoirse Nash.
