Twist and Knot
Publisher: Ginninderra Press
Over several decades, Ursula Nixon has written poetry to share with friends and fellow poets. She has performed at poetry festivals and gatherings on the Monaro and on the NSW South Coast and more recently has been challenged by poetry slams, writing in limited time to themes suggested by the audience. The poems in Twist and Knot range from perspectives of places, people, emotions, experiences and the natural world to social comment and the taste of grief, anticipated or actual. As readers will see, they encapsulate moments in a life combining work and travel in different cultures, with Africa and Vietnam being major influences.
