Satyress has special qualities that mark it for serious critical attention; the quality and unusual style of the syntax gives these poems an internal spark and enduring ‘sound’ rarely seen at this stage of a poet’s career.” – Anthony Lawrence, author of Headwaters (Pitt Street Poetry, awarded the Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Poetry 2017)
