Poems

My proudest success so far is being published in Island. Island is a magazine based in Hobart, Tasmania. They pay their writers. They have published so many writers whose work I love. From Tomas Tranströmer to Fiona Wright.

Rejections come with the territory of being a writer, so I’ve learnt to try and enjoy the acceptances. Huge thank you to Sarah Holland Batt for accepting my poem, ‘A State of Sunflowers’ for issue 149.
