The launch for Morton was a huge success. 80 people turned up. 55 copies of the chapbook were sold. I was humbled, overwhelmed.

Huge thanks to John and Linsay Knight (my publishers at Pitt Street Poetry) for all their support, and to John Foulcher, who said the most generous things about Morton (I had a tear in my eye at one point!). I'd also like to thank my friend Andre de Borde for having the launch at the very beautiful Gallery Ecosse in downtown Exeter.

And of course, much love and light to my family, friends and Magdalene Catholic High School colleagues. You made it such a glorious afternoon.

On another note, I'm reading at Rhizomic in Glebe tomorrow night. 7pm, Mr Falcon's. Michele Seminara and Anne Walsh are also on the bill with me. A very well-respected and well-known poet from Sydney will also be gracing us with his presence...

The next issue of CRUX will be appearing here very soon... Jean Kent is the featured poet... watch this space...
