In Residence at Bundanon

My poetry manuscript Homebake is a blistering examination of faith, fecundity and fidelity, set against the backdrop of rural Australia. Homebake interrogates its very title: what concoctions are cooked up at home when drugs run dry? Multigenerational trauma and triumphs. Homebake is a love letter to family—an anthem of grit and kinship—an amen for all people who stand by their addicts, who fist-fight alongside their survivors, a transformative festivity of love.

Bundanon acknowledges the people of the Dharawal and Dhurga language groups as the traditional owners of the land within our boundaries, and recognises their continuous connection to culture, community and Country.

In Dharawal the word Bundanon means deep valley.
