‘Is it strange that these poems, while often devastating, don’t fill me with sadness? Reading stories of illness, this is what it is to be (un)seen. The collection shows the duality of being cast out and cut free.’
From Katerina Bryant’s review of Shaping the Fractured Self: Poetry of Chronic Illness and Pain (ed. Heather Taylor Johnson), which includes poems and essays by me, David Brooks, Beth Spencer, Quinn Eades, Ian Gibbins, Andy Jackson, Rachael Wenona Guy, Rachael Mead and Leah Kaminsky, among others.
This anthology’s available from UWA Publishing and elsewhere.
