Spotlight on Writers, Ivor Steven

A huge thank you to the editors at Spillwords, Dagmara and Rebecca, who guided me through to produce this interview.




  1. Where, do you hail from?

I was born and raised in Geelong, Victoria, Australia (the southern part of the continent, an hour south of Melbourne), and I am still a resident of my home town, having never moved more than 5km away from my parents’ house.

  1. What is the greatest thing about the place you call home?

Geelong is a city beside the bay, and only 30 minutes away from the picturesque Bellarine Peninsula beaches, and the famous South Coast surf beaches. If I was to be reincarnated, I am sure I would come back as a dolphin.

  1. What turns you on creatively?

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.

  1. So nice to know more about you, Ivor. I love that you believe in the goodness of human beings, I do too. You live in a wonderful place, I had to google it to find out exactly where it is. It must be nice to stay in the same place all your life. My Father has itchy feet and dragged us across half of Africa. I don’t really mind, it was an education in itself. Congrats and keep shining your light. πŸ™‚
