These poems are about fighting yourself, and fighting the world. Most of my poems are about the personal conflict that many people can relate to as we’ve gotten older, and everything changing so quickly and learning all these lessons along the way but along the way of learning from them you patronise yourself thinking it was your fault all along
A Story Factory, Year of Poetry publication.
Year of Poetry is one of Story Factory’s most intensive programs. Throughout 2021, a committed group of young writers came to workshops every Thursday afternoon – first at Story Factory in Parramatta; then, when the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic hit, over Discord. Through these and many other disruptions, the young people in this program continued to write and support each other. This chapbook was written as part of that project.
This project was supported by the Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund.
