The Dorothy Hewett Award 2022 – short list

So my unpublished manuscript has been shortlisted for The Dorothy Hewett Award. My life as a poet has just changed and dreams are most certainly coming true in one way or another. Thank you to UWA Publishing and all the judges and

congratulations to all the short listed.

‘How to Order Eggs Sunny Side Up’

Searing poetry of feminine experience, How to Order Eggs Sunny Side Up is unashamedly visceral and lights up with flashes of literary incandescence. Formally inventive, bleakly comic, slyly erotic – these are poems which bristle with edges and glint like cut gems. Each poem arrives like a dare, refusing euphemism or domestication. #dha2022 #uwap #wapoets #poetry #poetrycommunity
