P is for Christine Paice

The Word Ghost by Christine Paice

If I were a poet like Paice I’d be composing this article in rhyme but poetry and I rarely agree so I’m afraid the words will have to be slung together in a different way.

Having bribed her family to live with her in Kiama, Paice spends her time teaching creative writing and poetry as well as writing her own poetry and books. If you’ve got a poetry bent then you might want to consider buying them here (I get no recompense here).

It’s nice to see people doing poetry. Paice is no exception to this and won the Josephine Ulrick Award for poetry in 2009 as well as being the Poetry editor and political writer for Old Trout, An American Review and working as a mentor with an Indigenous poet.
