I have found many of the following sites useful over the years. This page will gradually grow and morph into a more comprehensive list of literary ezines and print journals supplemented by links to activist sites, literary and cultural theory sites and sites dealing with mythology, spirituality and so on ... So check back frequently. Explore! Enjoy!

Current Highlights for Me:


White Rabbit is a poetry/performance poetry group out of Castlemaine producing some fascinating work on the web, live, on radio and in print! They also have a beautifully designed web-site. 

am influenced by?

Here are links to the sites of other writers, poets and creative thinkers who have been particularly inspirational to me over the years.

* Firstly, the sites of a number of friends are very much worth visiting: John Charalambous (award winning author of three novels: Furies, Silent Parts and Two Greeks); John Holton (short story writer/poet/editor and journalist) and the poet and short story writer Bruce Oakman.

* Dr Sue King-Smith: My life partner, Sue King-Smith, is also a poet, writer & academic. She has taught Australian and World Literature to undergraduates at La Trobe University (Bendigo/Shepparton) and was recently awarded PhD in Creative Writing by Deakin University. Her exegesis developed a contemporary political poetics of great relevance to writers and poets interested in social justice issues - the work also contained a significant creative component. In 2008 Sue's first poetry collection, 'An Accumulation of Small Killings', was published by MPU Melbourne (and was submitted for the Victorian Writers Prize for Poetry) and her poems, essays and stories have been extensively published both here in Australia and overseas. Apart from being a teacher of literature (higher ed), community services subjects and literacy and numeracy (VET sector - BRIT Koori Unit) , Sue has also worked extensively in the community services sector as a youth support worker, disability support worker, and, most recently, as a manager in the community capacity building unit at St. Lukes. A commitment to addressing disadvantage and systematised forms of oppression is also evident in her writings.  

See the following links to various recent online publications by Dr. Sue King-Smith: Text (poem) (published by AAWP - Association of Australian Writing Programs); Mascara (poem) (online literary journal); JASAL (essay) (Journal of the Association for the Study of Australian Literature) and her essay on Doris Lessing published by Linq (p.11 of the PDF - 2007). See also: 'Behind the Curtain' (2011); details of Sue's performance at Josephine Rowe's booklaunch (from poet Adam Ford's website) & Newstead Short Story Tattoo details (2011). Likewise, see Google's listing for 'A Wordless Horizon' (Sue's PhD exegesis) ; 'An Accumulation of Small Killings' (a listing for her poetry collection, published by MPU) and her World Catalogue (Identities) listing. Sue's interview - for The Animist - with Australian writer Beth Spencer, is still an interesting read today


* See also the work of my friends and colleagues over the years: Justin D'Ath (children's and Y/Adult writer, short story writer and novelist)  and Sara Douglass (who, sadly, recently passed away) . Lynne Kelly (writer and aunt - kind of) has also been insporational and I'm fascinated by the work of Australian academics Sue Gillett, David Tacey and Harry Oldmeadow.

* Many other f
iction writers, poets and thinkers connected to Central Victoria - or who are friends - are turning up in all kinds of national (Australian) and international publications these days (specific links to come). Here are some names to look out for: Mary Pomfret, (novelist/SS writer), Carmel Williams (SS writer/lyricist), Penny Sell (NZ novelist/SS writer), Bruce Oakman (poet/SS writer - author of In Defence of Hawaiian Shirts), Tru Dowling (poet/performance poet), John Snowdon (fiction writer/musician/ essayist), Miranda Aitken (Western Australian and Bendigo poet/lyricist and creative n/f writer), Pam Harvey (young adult writer/SS writer/non-fiction writer), Chris Elston (fiction writer), Mark Smith-Briggs (horror writer and screenwriter), Cameron Oliver (screenwriter/television), G.N. Braun (horror writer and non-fiction writer), Jess Anastasi (Romance writer), Graham Borrell (novelist/poet - author of 'Coogee and the Hunters' isbn 978-064645692-8), Jennifer Mellbourg (poet/creative non-fiction/fiction), R.I. Sutton (fiction writer/creative thinker), Dr. Rod Blackhirst (poet, fiction writer and academic), Dr. Roger Sworder (classicist and poet), Di Dempsey (Reviewer/Journalist & Screenwriter), Rosemary Sorensen (Journalist), Lauren Mitchell (short story writer and non-fiction writer), Ross Donlon (poet, book publisher), Neil Boyack (short story writer and poet), Josephine Rowe (fiction writer and poet), Cate Kennedy (fiction writer, poet, essayist etc.), Cassy Nunan (poet/short story writer and creative thinker), Lorraine Marwood (poet/children's writer, editor), Dr. Warren Burt (sound artist/ musician-composer & essayist), Simmone Howell (fiction writer), David L. Major (poet and fiction writer), Tegan Gigante (poet and creative thinker), Madeline Cooke (fiction writer), Julia Birch (poet and creative thinker-essayist), Sandra Pashkow, Brenda Skinner, James Roberts (poet/radio announcer and creative thinker) and Lisa Jacobson (poet/SS writer).

* My brother, Philip Irvine, as well as being a designer of software systems in the UK, is also a writer (for a copy of his book on desktop publishing go to Likewise, my brother Andy Irvine is a media officer for the Electrical Trades Union (Queensland and the Northern Territory)

* You might also want to check out a number of Australia's most innovative contemporary poets, e.g.: John Kinsella, John Tranter, Kevin Brophy, David McCooey, PiO, Lionel Foggarty, Maria Takolander and
Alison Croggon.

*The following sites have also been inspirational recently: US poetry theorist/critic Marjorie Perloff (if you want a crash course on the Anglo-American avant garde in particular this is your site), the Fluxos Portal , Michel Houellebecq (contemporary French Novelist), Postmodern Culture (online ezine), The American Academy of Poets, Links from English 88, University of Pennsylvania , Best NZ poems 2002-2005 (I spent nine years in NZ), UBU poetics (Experimental/Avant garde US poetry), UBU Ethnopoetics (curated by Jerome Rothenberg), Sulfur (edited by Clayton Eshelman author of Hades in Manganese), Ron Silliman, Gary Snyder , Robert Duncan, Adrienne Rich and Charles Bernstein. For a fascinating psychology site upon which I base aspects of my emerging TRP poetic visit Holotropic Breathwork.


And if that's not enough to keep you busy for weeks, you can disappear completely into the aether via  the more industry relevant links below.
