The Story Reading Ape hosts Australian poet and author Frank Prem who shares his long journey to publication… very interesting.
Hello Chris and readers of the TSRA blog.
I thought it might be a good time to introduce myself. I’m a writer who has been doing a long (40 years) apprenticeship in the craft and art of being a poet and storyteller.
I write in a relatively unpunctuated free-verse style, and focus on the capture and close examination of thoughts passing by and of imagery that suggests itself in the natural world around me.
Recently I attended a writing retreat away up North in the Queensland Rain Forest and came away having concluded a few things:
- My apprenticeship is done. I consider myself a journeyman, now.
- I am now officially in a state and stage of transition. From Psychiatric Nurse to Writer. From Writer to Author.
- Not forgetting – Publisher.
In short, I committed to career transition in the lead up to an official retirement from my profession.
