My Sisters Are Born

In 1999 my poetry was published in 'Vivid three' - A collection of creative writing from the Victorian College of The Arts - School of Studies in Creative Arts.

Milks Just Super!

When I was in primary school I wrote a poem for a competition running in the 'M-Team Magazine' (a fun publication for school children which promoted the dairy industry) and I won!

This is worth mentioning because it was very exciting to see my poem published in the magazine AND I won an ice cream maker (which is still going strong today). 

Here’s what I can remember…


Milk’s Just super as the M Team say

So if you haven’t tried it, try some today

But don’t expect a miracle from drinking just one glass,

Cos nothing else will happen if it’s also your last!
