Poetry for children

I live near the banks of Karrawirra Parri (Kaurna name), also known as the Torrens River. I love poetry and place — especially together — so I’m thrilled that three of my poems appear in the Wakefield Press anthology for children, Tadpoles in the Torrens. They’re also in the Teacher’s Edition

My writing for children appears in collections including Balloons Lit. Journal and The School Magazine; and in classrooms around South Australia.

We spend our adult lives trying to reclaim the wisdoms we had as a child, so I believe. I do this a little, I hope, through poetry.
