About the collection

What if they could talk?

What if the objects that catch our eye as we wander down the aisles at the Trash and Treasure Market could tell their own stories?

Frank Prem has heard them.

Voices In The Trash is a conversation with objects and things that exist on another plane, but whose voices are as real as yours and mine.

Join Frank Prem on his listening journey through the Trash and Treasure Market.

Can you hear them speak?

As a special treat.. Frank has recorded a few selected short poems from the book for you to enjoy.

One of the recent reviews for Walk Away Silver Heart on Goodreads

Feb 19, 2021 Bill Arnott rated it Five Stars it was amazing

I applaud Frank Prem for his initiative, “Walk Away Silver Heart” the first of a planned trilogy, each inspired by the lines of a classic poem. In the book’s introduction, the author explains the genesis of this project – a collaborative, international collection of poets, sharing writing prompts. Which I love. I first read Prem’s work on World Poetry Day, which I found rather wonderful, antipodean poets sharing inspiration, craft, and unspoken bonhomie. An agreeable dilution of borders, encapsulated well, in verse.

About Frank Prem

I’ve been a storytelling poet for about forty years. Longer in fact, as I remember the first poem I wrote while at secondary school was about 150 – 200 words long and was accepted in lieu of a 500 word essay. I think that may have been the start.

I love to read my work to a live audience, and have audio recorded some recent recordings and popped them on my author page. I have also done some studio- recorded work under the direction and accompaniment of my wife Leanne Murphy that can be listened to there. These poems are on mythological themes and the accompaniment by Leanne makes them a little bit extraordinary.

By profession, I am a psychiatric nurse and have worked across most facets of public psychiatry and the mental health/mental illness spectrum. My experiences and reflections on what I have seen and done are the subject of a forthcoming memoir – scheduled for late 2019, or perhaps more likely, 2020.

I’ve been published in magazines, zines and anthologies, in Australia and in a number of other countries, but for a long time I haven’t sought much publication. The whims of editors are a little too capricious and unknowable, so I have preferred to hone my craft and self-publish on my poetry blogs

Leanne and I reside in the beautiful township of Beechworth in the North-East of Victoria (Australia).


Thank you for dropping in today and it would be great if you could spread the news about Frank’s latest collection. Thanks Sally.

    Thank you Sally Cronin for promoting my new release picture book – Voices (In The Trash) at The Smorgasbord.

    With release day for the e-book imminent it was a pleasure to record a few more of these little tales for YouTube to go with the promotion, and I encourage readers from my own blog to pop over to the Smorgasbord and then across to YouTube to have a listen.

    Drop your comments and thoughts. Both Sally and I would love to hear from you.
