Hi there.

Born and based in Melbourne, Australia, I’m a single 42-year-old involuntary psychiatric patient on a disability support pension – schizophrenia, they tell me. But rather than drink myself to death, I’ve decided to run fortnightly poetry competitions out of my own pocket at DOUGHetry.com and write one poem for this blog per day. Many of the poems will no doubt be poor, but some will be good, and hey, it’s just a blog.

If you like anything you read here and you desire to encourage the creation of further poems and help me survive, you can donate any sum of money via my PayPal tip jar.

Thanks for dropping by.
