Hi Morgen, After reading a few posts, I was delighted to find other authors going through the same struggles as I. Writting, editing, promoting, selling our books. I would love to be a guest author as I have one published book and another in the pipeline. Stranger in the Pulpit was released on October of by Tate Publising. Its sequal Stranger in the White House is due in August The propoer spelling of my name is Bryan M. You can find Stranger in the Pulpit anywhere! Thank you, Bryan.
Morgen, Alana Woods here. I notice you have a couple of guest blog spots still open. Hello, I would like to be featured as a guest talking about topics relating to writing. I have appeared before on other ones before and have submitted articles to Ezine and Squidoos. Also would like to feature you as well on one of my blogs. Greetings Morgen, I would like to be a guest blogger. Ethan Holmes ethanholmes ethanholmes.
Hello, George. I welcome guest posts on any writing-related topic and yours certainly fits into that category. The guidelines are at the top of this page but I will email you directly. Enjoyed reading all your blog posts Morgen. Thanks everyone for such interesting articles and posts. The most daunting part of self-publishing for me was organising the cover, so I did a lot of research and wonder whether you would like a blog on the results of that research?

Like this: Like Loading Thanks, Terri Like Like. Connie Like Like. Thanks, Bryan Like Like. From the age of 19 he kept returning to the Faculty of Creative Arts, University of Wollongong, where he was about a semester away from finishing his degree. Having him on campus for nine years was like having a permanent Writer in Residence!
Of course schizophrenia could make him a very demanding person at times though the greatest demands were alas on Ben but he was also extremely giving. As a friend and as a poet he was not a snob, and although his work was high powered and erudite, to the point of appearing elitist to some, this was a man who loved the work of Nick Cave and The Doors, who could surprise everyone by bursting into Country and Western numbers, and who loved playing the pokies at the Illawarra Leagues Club accompanied by a schooner of Guinness.
For whatever reason he called himself the Catholic Yak, whilst this writer was the Protestant Elk! Anyone who heard him at his best his joint book launch with fellow poet Rob Wilson or his recent, and last, recital at the Five Islands Brewery will attest to this, though the power of his performance was such that like Hendrix at Woodstock he had to go last, no one could follow Ben. Ten years later it was Ben who had this role, however briefly, among many younger writers of Wollongong.
Ben, although forced by his illness to so often operate on his own was still a very loyal colleague to all. His great love was Allen Ginsberg, about whom and whose work Ben probably knew more than anyone in the country. This was a club that at no matter how junior a level Ben wished to join.
It was out of such seeming incongruities that much of his verse was assembled. Nor did he submit many poems to journals. Like similar ambitious poets Fernando Pessoa, Thomas Lovell Beddoes who died with gigantic plans less than fulfilled, Ben left boxes and notebooks of poems drafts and fragments. Will Australian literature be able to accommodate a young, near to unknown, non-careerist, yet extremely prolific deceased poet?
We hope so. Volumes are being planned. He is survived by his parents Howard and Denise, siblings Mathew, Nicole and Shane, a niece and nephews, Alise and many friends. Alan Wearne, in memoriam , Braden Karl Frederiksen has been experimenting publicly with the form and function of his writing for a few short years.

Brad has received a huge amount of constructive support for his writing from many well respected authors. Janet Frishberg lives and writes in a light blue room in San Francisco.
