Poet's new work looks at three lost souls
POET and English teacher Brett Dionysius has dedicated five years worth of his work to the memories of three lost Ipswich residents.
Although the collection is named after a poem about a station near Cunnamulla - Bowra - most of the work is inspired by Ipswich people and places, including three which describe the final moments in the lives of Andrew Bornen, Ben McNamara and Margaret Wheater.
"I call myself a narrative poet - I believe being able to tell a story is paramount," he said.
Bowra was launched in Melbourne last Friday and will be launched locally at the Ipswich Grammar School's Great Hall on Anzac Day at 3pm.
