I know it's been a long time since I posted anything to this blog. Life, as usual, got in the way, and other things had higher priority. In fact, major things have happened to my life, like the fact that in September last year I took a redundancy package from my teaching position at Box Hill Institute.
Over the last year I have been adjusting to life as a full-time writer, which has meant new regimes and new ways of making money. I can't say I have fully acclimatised to my new lifestyle, but at least I have other income streams happening while I concentrate on my writing projects.
Although I am doing some sessional teaching, both in games writing and in poetry writing, I plan to shift the focus of this blog into my new creative directions. What these are I will describe in future posts.
Meanwhile, for those interested in writing poetry, I am teaching a 'poetry for beginners' course at Writers Victoria. Below are links to a course description and an interview I did about poetry, language and publishing. Maybe I'll see some of you there.
