Poetica – Around the Nation

Last week, I made a very pleasant discovery. Mike Ladd, producer of Radio National’s weekly Poetica programme, has put together his annual selection of notable new poetry publications, and my work is included in his selection. The episode airs next month on the 13th of September at 3pm, but it is already available online to stream and/or download.

Listening to one’s own poetry being professionally recited by a voice actor is a wonderful experience, I must say. The titular poem from my collection, Regulator, is read perfectly and even has some appropriate sound effects mixed in to heighten the listening experience. Mike also generously adds a few very welcome positive comments in the poem’s introduction.

What a great thing to stumble upon! Have a listen. There are some fantastic examples of contemporary Australian poetry throughout the episode.
