For Avant Gaga, I'll be reading from False Nostalgia, a poetry and poetics project about memory, identity and narrative. I've been developing the project over the last year with support from the Australia Council for the Arts and Varuna, the Writers' House. My reading will showcase some of the work produced during my JUMP mentorship with Ross Gibson and the Dorothy Hewett Flagship Fellowship for Poetry residency.
