Hold Them Close: New poetry collection

Dear friends and colleagues

I am delighted to announce the publication of a new collection of poetry, Hold Them Close, published by Resource Publications, Oregon, this year.

The collection was launched in Canberra, Australia, this week, by performing artist Colin Milner, at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture.

The launch was hosted by the centre for Public and Contextual Theology, Charles Sturt University.

Poems in Hold Them Close were written during three years in Edinburgh, Scotland, where I lived while undertaking a PhD in New Testament Language, Literature, and Theology from the University of Edinburgh.

I have previously graduated from Flinders University, South Australia, with Bachelor of Theology Honours in 2014, and Bachelor of Arts Honours (Creative Writing) in 2001.

I was awarded the PhD in December 2017, and have been in placement as Minister of the Word at Canberra Central Uniting Church Parish in Australia since January 2018.

Please find attached the media release from Resource Publications, which I hope you may find helpful if you would like to know more, and perhaps share the news of Hold Them Close among your networks, in your publications, or include it in your catalogues. Agnew_Presskit

With best wishes for your creative and community-enriching endeavours.
