Rob Wallis

Wednesday, 6 October 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

On this week's show we were treated to a few poems from poet and writer, Rob Wallis, a lifelong teacher who grew up in 50s Australia, a time when being queer was taboo and hardly any positive representations abounded. Rob was a bonded teacher before breaking out into adult teaching for many years, teaching many different subjects to all kinds of people. He is a bona fide teacher's teacher. These days Rob spends his days in Castlemaine writing poetry and sometimes pottering around his garden. Rob's sixth book is a poetic history of the gay male experience in Australia, focussing in on particular instances and people, titled 'Down Rainbow Road', published by Clouds of Magellan Press. We thank Rob very much for being our wonderful guest this week.
