Myron and Jennifer

Stopping all Stations has come around again. Come and check us out on Saturday September 18 to hear Myron Lysenko AND Jennifer Harrison. Not to be missed!

Myron is a poet, editor, songwriter and musician. He is the author of six books of poetry, a founding editor (with Kevin Brophy) of the vibrant literary journal Going Down Swinging, and a member of accoustic folk band Dyana Gray and the Creme Brulees. Myron started to earn his living as a poet in 1989. He began his career by writing long narrative poems and these days he concentrates on writing haiku.

Jennifer Harrison is a Melbourne poet. Her fourth poetry collection, Folly & Grief, was published by Black Pepper Press in 2006. She has been awarded both the Anne Elder Poetry Award and the Martha Richardson Poetry Medal. Her poems have been widely anthologised in the Best Australian Poems and The Best Australian Poetry series and most recently in The Penguin Anthology of Australian Poetry and The Puncher & Wattmann Anthology of Australian Poetry. She has taught poetry in Turkey and Japan as well as Australia. Colombine, a volume of new and selected poetry is forthcoming from Black Pepper Press in 2010.


Sorry these are a bit late if you've been waiting for a post to appear.
(Been busy book launching! Dog Gone - my children's novel - should be hitting the shops anytime soon.)
Thank you, Chris Wallace-Crabbe, for a thoroughly entertaining afternoon of poetry!
