Definitely recommended reading, please see my review for more information. Now it’s over to the man himself:

Ivor Steven was formerly an Industrial Chemist, then a Plumber, and has been writing poetry for 19 years. His book “Tullawalla’ was published on the 30th March. He has had numerous poems published in anthologies, and on-line magazines. He is an active member of the Geelong Writers Inc. (Australia), and is a team member/barista with the on-line magazine “Go Dog Go Cafe” (America). He recently became the first international member of Coffee House Writers (USA).

The featured image is by Valdis Stakle, and was originally intended to illustrate this poem. However, due to the book layout, it now appears in The Anthropocene Hymnal after the poem ‘The Wheatsheaf.’

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.
