Goodbye Bruce Dawe, Condolences of the Season

Bruce Dawe 15 February 1930 – 1 April 2020


Thank you for being here,

thank you for being you,

thank you for demonstrating

that great poetry can come from a veggie patch,

or the roar of a football crowd.

The Launch of Verity La Mark II

The story of the best Australian online journal continues…

Verity La has been redesigned and restored.

VL has been supporting and publishing established and emerging writers for years, myself included on multiple occasions. Steered by some of the greats; Nigel Featherstone, A.S. Patric, Stuart Barnes, Ramon Loyola, and now, under the current managing editor Michele Seminara it has undergone some major renovations, including the podcast, generous payments to contributors, the release of their first eBook anthology and the launch of the vamped up new website.

Jump over to Verity La to check out the new image.

While there, have a look at The Hunger, only AUD10.00 for some of the best writing over the last 8 years, with all proceeds being returned to future contributors – a worthy cause for starving artists.
