Colin Young is an emerging poet and translator with a special interest in Greek poetry and drama. He was guest poet at the Queer Poetry night as part of the Perth Poetry Festival in 2016 and his poetry has been published in Dot Dot Dash.
He has performed as guest poet numerous times at the Perth Poetry Club in Northbridge, and at open mike sessions at other venues in Perth. He has had an interest in mythology and archetypes and his work is influenced by the poetry of other cultures. Colin is a committee member of the Fellowship of Australian Writers WA.
Sue Clennell’s poems have been published in The Weekend Australian, Westerly, Poetry NZ, Famous Reporter, Unusual Work, FourW, and in various anthologies including ‘Best Australian Poems’ and ‘Australian Love Poems.’ She has twice been a runner up in The Josephine Ulrick Poetry Prize, and has had three plays performed in Sydney & Canberra’s ‘Short & Sweet Festival.’ Her poetry CD, ‘The Van Gogh Cafe’ is for sale here for just $5.

He has published a verse novella, two verse novels and five collections, the most recent being These Things Are Real (Giramondo 2017). He works for an outfit called Narrative Verse in English (company founder Geoffrey Chaucer) and considers himself both an elitist and an entertainer.
