Praise for Fingertip of the Tongue:

This poetry collection explores how the self, the body and poetry are intimately connected in their various expressions, while obliquely mapping a personal history of loss, change and rejuvenation. Sarah Rice is fascinated by the flux, flow and harmonic resources of language, and entranced with the transformations words work on the world. These poems ruminate on connections between the imagination, the extraordinary and what is close at hand.


Praise for Chromatic:

Munden’s vivid, well realised poems range across hemispheres and centuries, embracing music, art, film, historical events, and the potent catalysts of love, illness and death. In these pages our human frailties are apprehended with both a clear eye and a tender attentiveness.
