Publishing, workshops & prizes: poet Kristin Hannaford going from strength to strength

Capricorn Coast writer Kristin Hannaford has taken out third place in Lip magazineโ€™s 2018 Rachel Funari Prize for Fiction.  Kristin's piece Quiquiriqui will be published on Lip's website, along with winner Liz Allan's Our Voices, Fierce, and second place story Post by Emily Clements.

Hannaford was also recently featured in online women's poetry journal Not Very Quiet with her poem Eating the Reef.  Like many of her works, it looks at the natural world and humankind's place in it, environment and sustainability.

You can learn from this accomplished poet at the top of her game at the Emu park Art Gallery's workshop Poetry & Art: Ekphrasis on June 21.  Ekphrasis is a particular form of poetry that responds to a given artwork - for instance, have a look at Anne Sexton's response to Van Gogh's Starry Night.
