Voices (In The Trash) – DG (Debby) Kaye’s review

It is interesting the way serendipity works. In the last couple of days I have been finalising (I hope) the Beechworth Bakery Bears sequel (waiting for frank-bear) and sorting through available images, with a particular eye on a second tranche of photos taken at the Daylesford Mill Markets - the home of the voices from … Continue reading Voices (In The Trash) – DG (Debby) Kaye’s review

Poetry August – my (Robbie’s) review of Voices (in the trash) by Frank Prem

It’s a great pleasure to be able to share with you Robbie CHeadle’s review of Voices (In The Trash).

It is a greta delight to have been able to (in a way) bring these objects and creatures to life (or to voice, perhaps), and so much more so when I know another someone else has also enjoyed them.

Pop over to Robbie’s place and check out the review and her own work, with Sir Chocolate and her other writings – both prose and poetry.

It’s a great visit.

Join Frank Prem on his listening journey through the Trash and Treasure Market.

Voices (In The Trash) – Liz’s review

I am pleased to share a review of Voces (In The Trash) posted by Liz Gauffreau. Liz discusses the nature of this kind of poetry (picture poetry/spoken image), and also highlights the fact that each item in the collectibles barn, or second-hand goods shop has had a previous life, perhaps previous love. It is this … Continue reading Voices (In The Trash) – Liz’s review
