Fellow Writer in Residence: Scott-Patrick Mitchell

Writers who work in more than one genre always fascinate me. Scott-Patrick Mitchell for example works as a journalist for OUTinPerth and writes poetry and fiction.

His work has been published in anthologies and Scott-Patrick has been a guest of the National Young Writers’ Festival and the Emerging Writers’ Festival. This year he adds FAWWA’s residency to his list of credentials.

Wait, there’s more he also won awards:

  • 2009,  The PressPress Chapbook Award for songs for the ordinary mass
  • 2010, Perth Poetry Slam

If you’d like to get a taste of poetry performance you might like to join his workshop:

Creating By Chance: Saturday, 28th July, 11am – 1pm
Scott-Patrick will launch Coral Carter’s new book right after this and Laurie Marr will launch Scott-Patrick’s book, definitely worth sticking around or joining in the afternoon!
