A serene poem that parents can especially connect with. Our Reader Rating ?/?.
When I left for Australia in the early 1970s I drew no connections between my family’s origins, my life on military bases and the cultural and feminist issues I was soon confronted with. Nor did I understand the profound implications of that act on the women of my family, women who I much later discovered, had trodden similar paths.
I am a multi-cultural, multi-lingual chameleon with an academic background in intercultural studies. Margaret Atwood, Charmian Clift, Isabel Allende, Allan Bennett and Laurie Lee are my muses and they reflect the diverse sources and experiences I draw on.
What is your story, Magz?
Having been repeatedly transplanted from Canada to England to Europe and
later to Australia, I bring a particular perspective to my writing. I have
completed a manuscript Motherlands 1916 - 2016 which spans the years
1916 to 2016, crossing the oceans from Liverpool to Canada to Australia. It
tells the story of three difficult women linked by war and military life, by
trauma, displacement, exclusion and by resilience, initiative and courage.
I am also writing poetry and an anthology of short stories that explore the inter-cultural and inter-gender disconnect/ perspectives.
On my blog, I intermittently write a variety of excerpts and articles about writing, the arts and related events, including “Stuck in the Birth Canal” and “Treachery Knows No Depths.” Usually I post on Fridays but currently I’m doing some heavy breathing as my manuscript moves through the birth canal.
