So, here we are in March…

Is it really March? Shaking my head. Tell me, what happened to January and February? After spending my summer break working on the sequel to Falling Pomegranate Seeds: The Duty of Daughters, I’m now back tutoring at Swinburne University and seeing to the smooth sailing of Other Terrain and Backstory, two peer-reviewed writing journals belonging to the Swinburne’s Writing Department. The theme of these issues are something very close to our hearts:

Migration: To be an artist means never averting our eyes. 

This came about as a response to current world affairs – particularly that of countries closing their borders to those fleeing war and persecution.

Interested in adding your voice to these issues?

Submissions close on May 7th.

Last week we enjoyed our Women’s History Event at Eltham Library. It was such a lovely day with a lot of thought-provoking and inspiring discussion, discussion which also involved the audience. We hope to repeat the experience next year.


I’m now looking forward to the Arkfest Short Play Festival on March 24th when I get to see the performance of my play imagining the final conversation between Socrates and his wife, Xanthippe.

I am crossing my fingers it gets voted in for the finals on March 24th, but it is prize enough that my little play was selected for two short play competitions this year.

Thank you so much for subscribing to my blog and newsletter!
