Beyond Individualism

Sandra, June and Minaira (artist).

There is so much power in the connection of artists within community. It keeps me optimistic no matter what else happens. The conversations, the friendships, and the thoughtfulness.

Behind the scenes, for a few months now, I have been connecting with Sandra, Minaira and several other people to work on a special publishing project to be out at the end of the year.

It is my first guest editing spot with the Queensland Writer’s Centre, and has been a wonderful experience.

You will eventually find out the significance of this Ngatu, which Sandra was picking up from Minaira to take to be scanned.

I don’t want to share too much just yet, saving it for the editorial.

I’ve also been to a super special poetry workshop on the Art of Invisible Mending, (poetry editing) with Felicity Plunkett. It was tremendous to learn about Felicity’s process and have four lines of poetry edited, in what became a magnificent master class in editing, with sensitive listening, and questions.

We also had to do a spot of feedback to our fellow participants. Special thanks to Queensland Poetry for organising poetry workshops on zoom.

Well, that’s all for now. Back to work!
