In this honest and far ranging episode of Pocketry Presents, Scott-Patrick Mitchell takes great care in dealing with the issues surrounding the publication of their debut collection, Clean, forthcoming with Upswell Publishing in 2022. They talk about the Port Augusta train station and the Indian Pacific, the stars and writing your own creation myths, the magic of writing, coming up with your own language for poetry, homophobia and the publishing world, stage jam and sonically burlesque fringe shows, duty of care, gender identity and expression, grief and letting go, the ebb and flow of success and failure, the dangers of comparison and reading as a tool to develop care and compassion.
