Jo Reads Her Winning Poem on ABC Radio

Last month, Joanna Fay (writing as Jo Mills) took first prize in the Banjo Paterson Award.

You can hear her reading her winning poem, Orpheus in the Desert, over at the ABC Radio Central West's Morning Show Blog. Here she also talks about the inspiration behind this beautiful and moving poem and how she takes the Orpheus legend and places it in an Australian desert landscape.

Congratulations Jo.



  1. It's a lovely poem. I hope it gets snapped up by a print journal soon!
