Pickwick’s Poet in Residence celebrates Indigenous Australia

Local poet and Pickwick employee Mark Riordan has published a new book, Indigenous Australia. It is a look into the culture of Australia’s Indigenous citizens. Through poetry and original dot paintings the poems are brought to life and give the reader a glimpse of our ancestral heritage.

Notably last year, after composing a poem for Her Majesty’s 90th birthday, and sending his book The Poetry of Queensland, Mark received a very gracious letter and card from Her Majesty thanking him for his kind words.

Mark has been writing poetry for over 30 years and his numerous books represent the many unique passions and loves of his life.
