Of Eggs Under Moon she says “This poem came out of the March 1, 2011 Poetry Fishbowl, a live poetry activity that I hold monthly in The Wordsmith’s Forge. It was inspired by a prompt from Mary-Grace Ellington.”

As Barry mentioned we have three recitations of the poem and so three narrators: Barry himself, Rish Outfield and Mae Zarris-Heaney.

Rish Outfield publishes The Dunesteef Audio Fiction Magazine, with Big Anklevich. The Dunsteef regularly publishes genre fiction. In addition to The Dunesteef, both Rish and Big can heard all over the pod-o-sphere; they’re popular and talented voice artists.

Mae Zarris-Heaney is a MasterChef-wannabe disguised as a telco professional. She lives in the picturesque outer suburbs of Melbourne in a house being overtaken by rabid plants. You can see her delicious cooking experiments online or hit her up on Facebook.
