Book Launch: Shaping the Fractured Self : Join us for the launch of an important new poetry anthology, edited by Heather Taylor Johnson Other events...
UWA Publishing warmly invites you to the launch of Shaping the Fractured Self: Poetry of chronic illness and pain, edited by Heather Taylor Johnson.

Shaping the Fractured Self showcases twenty-eight of Australia’s finest poets who happen to live with chronic illness and pain. The autobiographical short essays, in conjunction with the three poems from each of the poets, capture the body in trauma in its many and varied moods. Because those who live with chronic illness and pain experience shifts in their relationship to it on a yearly, monthly or daily basis, so do the words they use to describe it.

Shaping the Fractured Self will be launched by writer, scholar and contributor Rachel Robertson. The launch will also feature readings from contributing poet Kevin Gillam and editor Heather Taylor Johnson.

Please RSVP by Monday 17 July for catering purposes.
Speaker(s) Heather Taylor Johnson (writer and editor of Shaping the Fractured Self); Rachel Robertson (Launcher); Kevin Gillam (Poet)
Location Love House Seminar Room, 28 Broadway, Nedlands 6009
