Poet’s Writings and My Interest
I am always interested in reading other poet’s writing, especially from Jean Kent who was a poetry mentor of mine in 2004. Jean was very generous at the time spending hours and hours (in email time) editing and discussing my “prose poetry”. Many poems went on to be published in journals, anthologies and also in my first collection Evangelyne & Other Poems. I will be forever grateful for her help in my early career as a writer!
Jean Kent is the author of eight books of poetry. Her most recent books are The Hour of Silvered Mullet (Pitt Street Poetry, 2015) and Paris in my Pocket (PSP, 2016), a selection of her poems from an Australia Council residency in Paris. With Kit Kelen, in 2014 Jean co-edited A Slow Combusting Hymn: Poetry from and about Newcastle and the Hunter Region. Samples of her poems and occasional jottings are on her website http://jeankent.net/
