Congratulations to Helen whose two poems ‘Gasp’ and ‘Carry the Truth’ have been selected for inclusion in Creatrix #50, the online poetry journal of the WA Poets Inc. You can find Helen’s poems here.
Earlier this year, when poets could still meet, perform and share their work in person (remember those times?), she was awarded Poet of the Month at Chamber Poets, held in regional Victoria, for her poem ‘Unsaid’. The judge was poet and author Kevin Brophy, Professor of Creative Writing at the University of Melbourne.
Don’t ever let it be said that a mere world-wide pandemic can hold back Elwood Writers!
Helen McDonald’s poem New is published in the anthology Love’s footprint from Poetica Christi Press. Congratulations to Helen. We’re looking forward to reading her work and that of all the other poets featured in this beautiful volume.
Helen McDonald’s poem ‘In deep blue’ is a prize winner in July’s Poetry Matters competition. That piece, along with Helen’s ‘A Friday, like any other’, is published in the always excellent Poetry Matters journal (Issue 36, July 2019). The theme of the issue is ‘runaway world’. More information on the work of Poetry Matters is available here.
Many congratulations to Helen!
A peaceful weekend and happy reading and writing to everyone.
