Launch of Truth in the Cage and The Hunger from Verity La Press

Last night was the launch of Verity La’s ebook anthology The Hunger and Truth in the Cage by Iranian poet Mohammad Ali Maleki at the Sydney Poetry Lounge. I was honoured to be part of a terrific line-up of featured writers whose work appears in The Hunger.

Mohammad Ali Maleki’s poetry is brilliant and moving. Maleki wrote the poems in Truth in the Cage during his incarceration in Manus Island’s detention centre. It was something very special to hear his work read by Verity La’s managing editor Michele Seminara, who edited the collection.
