We publish this communique from one of our Feature Poets
for the upcoming ‘Young Eternal’ event.
Claire Fitzpatrick lost a leg in the Vietnam War. Just kidding – she found one. Since then, she’s become fascinated in human anatomy and wartime.
Her poetry is a mixture of horror, obsessive love, stalkers, life, death, and war! Her novel ‘Vinyl’, about nurses and political protesters in Australia
during the Vietnam War was recently accepted for publication.
She’s also had short horror and dark comedic stories published in anthologies.
Claire has been a feature poet at Poetry Open Words in Brisbane and recently Poets Corner in Maroochydore. She’s also performed a theatrical poetry performance at Velvet Helmet including a bloody scroll she unravelled from her underwear.
