Background Information

Tasmanian-born poet Rosemary Nissen-Wade, who now lives in northern New South Wales (Australia), fell in love with poetry as a child and has been making it ever since. She won juvenile literary prizes, and as an adult has been widely published, anthologised and broadcast. She lived many years in Melbourne, during which time she was one of the founders of the Poets Union of Australia, coordinated a series of prison poetry workshops, and created the poetry theatre group Word of Mouth with three other poets. In the eighties and nineties she was an independent poetry publisher as proprietor of Abalone Press and as one of the Pariah Press Cooperative. She has taught creative writing in a variety of venues from tertiary institutions to maximum security prisons, and currently at her local Neighbourhood Centre. As well as poetry, she has had short stories and book reviews published, and articles on healing in specialist magazines. A Reiki Master, professional psychic, witch, and Teacher of Metaphysics, she also blogs on writing, healing and magick, and hosts the "Haiku on Friday" blog on MySpace. Influences: W.B. Yeats, Dylan Thomas, Sylvia Plath, Marge Piercy, the Australian performance poets of the eighties.
