Poems in journals, 1991–2013

My first published poem was entitled ‘Mother Russia’, which appeared in a short-lived journal called Typecast that was being run, it seemed, from the premises of the Reasonably Good Cafe in Chippendale, Sydney, in 1991.

Since then, my poems have appeared in a wide variety of print and online journals, both in Australia and internationally.
