Recent Work Readings – Jacqui Malins & Penny Drysdale

As part of the That Poetry Thing readings, join us at Smith’s Alternative for the launch of two new Recent Work titles
F-words by Jacqui Malins.

‘F-words’ is less expletive, more reconnaissance flight. In this five-year exploratory survey of territory that might include poetry, Malins forays into fables, fauna and flora, family, feminism, faraway and further. Whether in factual, fictive, fabulist or forensic form, Malins is squinting through life’s surface reflections and writing what she glimpses underneath.

I am the Glass by Penny Drysdale. Penny Drysdale invites readers into her home and her transience as her relationship begins to end. It is never easy to get on with your life. I am the glass is window into these tender invisible journeys.
