Dial Tone awarded 3rd place in Health Poetry Prize

My poem Dial Tone came third in the University of Canberra 2017 Health Poetry Prize! Congrats to winner Joe Dolce and runner-up, Vanessa Procter.

“The University of Canberra Health Poetry Prize aims to inspire others through poetry to consider the journey to live life well. The poem may be focussed on mental or physical health, and can investigate what ‘living life well’ means. This may include barriers to living a well life, promoting a life lived well, or describe the experience of, or transition to, living life well.

The prize-winning and short-listed poems will be published by the University. Meanwhile, here is an excerpt from Dial Tone:

“Chandelier” installed at Flinders Uni Student Hub

The Chandelier is one of the works I did with Deb Jones and Catherine Truman for the Microscope Project in 2014. It was acquired by Flinders University and installed above the main stairwell at the entrance to their new Student Hub. Here is an excellent little video that Flinders made about the installation.
