Going Down Swinging promotional clip and track!

Promotional clip for Going DownSwinging No. 23

Check out this promotional clip (once called a “cart” in the community radio sector) for the launch of Going Down Swinging No. 23.

Why should I care? Well, this is the first time I’ve ever been mentioned in a cart. I can now add this honour to my list of good things.

Oh, and because the launch will be happening this weekend:

Going Down Swinging launch
Sunday 25th June, 7pm – 10pm

For more info visit the GDS site.

I’m lucky enough to have a poem, entitled “Fifty”, in the issue.

David Prater, ‘The Boys Who’

In addition, you can now check out one of my audio poems from the GDS vaults. It’s called “The Boys Who” and it’s featured on the CD accompanying the issue.

What can I say? Two pieces in the best Australian literary journal ever! Untold and bulk ace!
