Ali Jane Smith
is the author of a chapbook, Gala, published long, long ago by the Five Islands Press New Poets Program. If you would like to know my news, there is a link to my ‘news’ in the menu. But really, if you would like timely warnings about performances and publications, then it is best to follow me on the socials. Once I have you, I will also bombard you with information about other stuff, sucked in.
I have also written reviews and essays. Here’s the stuff I’ve written for Sydney Review of Books and here is a piece I wrote about all poetry called ‘Poetry, Whatsoever‘, for Cordite and here is something I wrote about the work of Susan Hampton for Southerly’s blog.
I’m also in a marching band called Radical Drums Corps. We play at rallies, marches and demos. We meet weekly for a drum lesson/practice at Anchors Aweigh Art Studios. We have a drum teacher from Anchors Aweigh who also creates original compositions just for us. So poetry is just my day job now.
