    My name is Judith Ann Beveridge from Omaha, Nebraska USA. I am a retired teacher. I too write poetry. Not nearly as good as hers! She inspires me. If she ever comes to the USA for a workshop, I would love to meet her. It is an honor to share the same name!

    I attended a workshop run by Judith at the Word for Word Festival in Geelong this weekend. A terrific and very practical workshop. How nice to be reading poetry one (I at least) could understand and connect with without having to consult a dictionary. A good selection of various poets' work was looked at and the exercise inspired me to look at some of Judith's own work. Love it. Thanks, Judith. Very inspirational.

    The Fishermen's Son is a wonderful poem!

roll an oar, or when he pulled the thick boots on.
Perhaps it was when he saw the curved thin rod
of the moon angle into his father’s face and hook
his mouth into an ugly grin; or perhaps when
the sun rerouted his eyes to the necks of wading
birds along the shore as the first pink tones

of dusk uncurled along the ferns. It could have
been the way his father’s knife eased out the eyes
of so many fish like spoonfuls of compote that gave
him thoughts black as the inky emulsions of squid,
a sleep no fishing boat ...
