Alan Wearne

Having become a small businessman and chief poetic officer of the Grand Parade Poets publishing outfit, Alan Wearne still finds time to write his own brand of narrative and satiric verse, inspired by the Australia he knows and tries very hard to at least appreciate. If he loves slamming this country from within (when necessary) he also enjoys defending it from those, particularly the ignorant, attacking it from without. It’s all a family thing and as a reward he hopes his next collection Cabin Crew, Prepare the Cabin For Landing, due from Giramondo in 2012, to be a bestseller.
