Who, me? I’m an ex-lawyer, ex-public servant, ex-tea maiden, ex-PhD student in Japanese history, a poet and a mother of two.
My name is also an anagram of Dismantle Him. Read into that what you will. Go find your own anagram here.
Why ‘Mull ‘n’ Fiddle’? I owe this to my fellow-poets Martin Dolan, Suzanne Edgar and Michael Thorley.* The four of us meet and critique each other’s work once a month or so at a secret location which we have christened ‘the Mull ‘n’ Fiddle’ – because we mull over and fiddle with poems when we are there. This blog is an online extension of that enterprise.
*Incidentally we all have books out with Ginninderra Press – Martin’s is Clouds and Edges, Suzanne’s is The Painted Lady, and Michael’s is Sleeping Alone. For a free taster, you can check out some of Suzanne’s and Michael’s work on the poempig blog. Michael also publishes in Stylus Poetry Journal and Suzanne in Quadrant magazine.
