“It was profound to me, that life could be improved by such small increments and simple measures. It was sobering too, that so many other women might never consider the notion of change, might never be encouraged to.” The Normalisation of Awful was an essay I wrote in 2017 for the wonderful Overland Literary Journal.

…Together Alive at the Same Point in Time. “my attempt at working through some of the big things I’m processing around my working life at the moment – the things I’ve done and the things I’d like to do, how to get from here to there, and how to work around or through everything else along […]

After a great many months in progress I can now share the new piece I’ve written for Griffith Review, for their current edition ‘Millennials Strike Back’ – Navigating Life In Art. It’s my attempt at working through some of the big things I’m processing around my working life at the moment – the things I’ve done and the […]

Writing is a slow-burn gig, that’s for sure. Early this year I’ll be seeing the big reveal of few things I worked hard on in 2016, while some other new works come together seemingly overnight.

A great deal of that weekend was spent learning the fine art of relaxation, through breathing, meditation and […]

You Are Here 2013 is done, my third and final turn as co-producer. Cue violins and hand me a tissue. I can’t even begin to tell you what an impact this festival has made on my life, professionally and otherwise, in no small part due to the huge number of incredible individuals I have had […]

…When I first began to go to Belconnen it always felt like Summer. The grass seemed always burnt and weakly green, the air shimmered, affording the outlaying hills with an almost tender haze. It was cool inside those 70s brick houses, but sweaty inside strange beds. Warm beers would condensate aside cold backyard pools, car […]

April brings with it the 3rd anniversary of this little blog. That also means that if I stretch the number of posts I’ve made (155 or so) across those three years you get a very poor average in terms of update rates. Tsk. If you’ve got time to kill (and can’t possibly find anything better […]
