Round 4 part 2 Poets
Cat is a Canberra-based creative generalist. Their work has previously appeared in FIVE:2:ONE, Everyday Fiction, Hashtag Queer volume 2, Bent Street volume 3, and Cicerone Journal’s These Strange Outcrops.
Sara Crane is a poet who delicately balances a rawness and grace in her performance and writing. A Triple J Unearthed feature artist, AFTRS screenwriting graduate and 2015 Hilltop Hoods/APRAAMCOS Initiative winner. She’s had work published in Grieve anthology and Fe*mzine. She was the Kempsey heat winner and a NSW State finalist in the 2019 Australian Poetry Slam. She published a book of poetry ‘Only Skin Separates Us’ with Girls on Key press.
Joshua Donovan is an emerging writer/poet/spoken word artist from Melbourne, Victoria. He enjoys word play, rhyming schemes and turning personal thoughts into universal feeling. With scattered publications, mostly in Deakin university’s literary journal (WORDLY), Donovan considers himself otherwise exceptionally unknown.
Luke Judge is a young poet from the Hunter Valley. Started exploring themes relating to his youth, identity, family and nature during COVID isolation.
Charles J. March III
Charles J. March III is a neurodivergent Navy hospital corpsman veteran from the South Side of Chicago, who is currently trying to live an eclectic life with an interesting array of recovering creatures in Orange County, CA. His various avant-garde works have appeared in or are forthcoming from the Chicago Tribune, 3:AM Magazine, Harbinger Asylum, McSweeney’s, Free State Review, Fleas on the Dog, Queen Mob’s Teahouse, BlazeVOX, Blood Tree Literature, Points in Case, Stinkwaves, The Writing Disorder, Literary Orphans, Otoliths, Oddball Magazine, et al. His outsider music musings can also be found on SoundCloud.
Rodney Wilder is a biracial nerd who bellows death-metal verse in Throne of Awful Splendor and writes poetry, with previous work appearing in places like FIYAH, FreezeRay, TRACK//FOUR and Poets Reading the News, as well as Stiltzkin’s Quill, his most recent attempt at grimoiring all the geeky incense left lit in his ribcage. When not fawning over his poet-friends at various Portland open mics, he likes analogizing things to Pokémon and getting lost in Oregonian forests with his co-meanderer.
