2010 is not the end of the world, nor is 2012. Though I have no idea what it will entail for any of us, let alone me. What I do know is that I’ve been offered two splendid residencies – one at Rosebank Retreat just near Macedon (an hour north of Melbourne) – http://www.http://vwc.org.au/services/rosebank-retreat – and the other at the Katharine Susannah Prichard Writers Centre in the Perth Hills (see the blogroll for link). Looking forward to both, and hoping that any pesky hurdles don’t suddenly lunge in between me and them.
So, this is just a tiny update. I’ve added a few useful links at the bottom right blogroll (he says, wincing at the name…) – I’d recommend checking Adam Ford’s blog each week for answers to the question “Why do you write poetry?”.
