WATER-RAT WINS JOURNALISM AWARD!

Kurilpa Poet, Paul Dobbyn takes the Mic

Gad, we Water Rats are a multi talented lot! When we’re not writing Timeless Verse

we’re off making our mark in other fields of creativity.

Or at least such is the case with esteemed Kurilpa Poets Elder, Mr Paul Dobbyn.

For when he’s not writing poems or battling Super-Villains, Paul is a mild-mannered reporter for “The Catholic Leader“.

His journalistic skills were recognised recently at the 2014 Australian Catholic Press Association awards in Canberra, when he won the prize for Best News-Story of the Year.

Capping this success, another of his reports won the Australian Religious Press Association award for Best News Story of 2014!

We at the Kurilpa Poets Desk salute Paul’s achievement! Well earned, Mate, we’re all proud of you.

  1. Congratulations to Paul, if he keeps this up the croquet club may shed it’s bad name and we poets may be free of the stigma against us, regardless of how much truth in the notion of we as daytime drinkers, tardy arrivers, and pot stirrers.

  2. Ha ha!! Yet is it all one way? Might it not also be about my seeking harmony?
    A partaking of, a certain balancing influence as I bask in the seductive glow my fellow Water Rats skim from the Brisbane River’s sparkling surface (and of course secret delights from its darker currents)
