Extract from a letter received.
“Earlier this year I launched ‘The Long Moment’ at the Sydney Writers’ Festival. I always have loved poetry and writing, and was privileged while at James Ruse to experience the wonderful teaching and encouragement of many people, especially within the English, Mathematics and Music Departments.
My brother James (1989) also enjoyed his years at the school. He graduated as a medical doctor in 1996 and is now working full-time as a musician, travelling between Sydney and the UK, where he lives for most of each year. I am about to submit a PhD thesis on contemporary American poetry, and also work as a musician.”
