My Poetry Re-Featured On Helen Lowe’s Blog, Plus New International Spec Fic Poetry Competition

This year, Helen Lowe has refeatured four of my poems on her excellent blog – that is, she’s re-posted four of my poems that she has previously featured on my blog as Tuesday Poems. Here they are:

The First Artist On Mars


The stars, Natasha

Angela Carter

Thanks, Helen!

New International Spec Fic Poetry Competition

I’ve recently found out about a major new international competition for speculative poetry, now open for entries (deadline 1 May):

What’s particularly cool is that this competition was partly inspired by the anthology I co-edited with P.S. Cottier, The Stars Like Sand: Australian Speculative Poetry – which gets a nice mention on its “About” page: – and that it is judged by Jo Mills, one of the contributors to The Stars Like Sand.

If you haven’t already, check out the excellent review The Stars Like Sand received in the Sydney Morning Herald.

The Tuesday Poem

While I’m not posting a Tuesday Poem myself this week, I’m this week’s Tuesday Poem editor over at the hub Tuesday Poem blog, and I’ve selected “This Is Love” by Gemma White. Check it out!
