Newfound poems

Previously unpublished work from the giant of Australian poetry

Hanging on the telephone

What happens when kids encounter a landline

From locked out to locked in

When international ports close, what happens to those at sea?

The Uighurs of Xinjiang

A visit to Ürümqi’s quieted streets and contested museums

Julian of Norwich

Might challenges to neoliberal orthodoxies emerge from the pandemic, as challenges to Christian faith did after the Black Death?

Rough draught

Keeping up appearances during periods of homelessness

He is risen!

Keeping mum about the Easter Bunny

Three disasters, a wedding and a funeral

Reckoning with family in times of drought, fire and flood


What can children before God learn about parenthood from the Psalms?

Written on the skin

Trading the joys of a childhood spent in the sun for an adulthood under scrutiny on a skin clinic table
