Ocean Hearted Flood Relief Project

Wednesday, January 12, 2011
Graham Nunn:
All around the world, images of our beautiful state of QLD going under water are causing distress and heartache. In my own life, there are people near to me who are facing possible evacuation and incredible loss. It is nothing short of catastrophic… and I want to give back.

Poetry has always been a hopeful force in my life, so I have decided to use my last book, Ocean Hearted, to raise funds for flood relief in QLD. Here’s my plan…

From January 12 to January 26, I will donate 100% of all sales to flood relief and to add to that, I will personally give an extra AUD$5 for every book sold. Copies of Ocean Hearted can be purchased for the regular price of AUD$15 (incl. postage) via paypal or cheque / money order.

How we met

Penelope Shuttle and Peter Redgrove:
Peter Redgrove: Our creative energies are also related to our sex life. We find that if we go to bed at night, make love, dream, and sit down for breakfast the next morning, there erupts an amazing firework of pleasure in life: the senses have been cleaned, the world transformed. Penny and I call such poems Illuminated Breakfast Poems.
