Hi Allan,

I recently sent you a few questions on behalf of Scene magazine Brisbane in relation to your involvement in the QLD poetry Festival.
Firstly, I would like to say that I would have preferred the chance to speak to you one on one as I think your thoughts would have been better communicated than a few questions sent off to you over the internet.

Secondly, I don't know whether this is the appropriate forum ,but I would like to say that I am stoked to have come across your work. When you find someone a couple of chapters ahead of yourself, to the point where they can put words to the thoughts you thought only you and your closest mates considered is a wonderful thing.

Basically, I'm wanting to say, thankyou for being proactive enough to really 'do'something about the situations a lot of people feel are hopeless.

I look forward to following your work, and, in the same breath, carrying the torch - without sounding too morbid, or self-righteous, about it. Although, I do feel these things are all too often labelled as leftist rantings when two words would suffice ; the truth.

Thanks, and good luck,

ALison Mooney
