Listen to Specially Commended poet Elenia Graf



In last year’s Fresher Writing Prize, Elenia Graf really impressed our poetry judge, Anthony Dunn with her piece, Excavation.

Since being highly commended, Elenia was kind enough to join us for an interview and to read her poem in our recording studio.



maybe the time has come

for excavation

taking an axe down memory lane

and cutting down all the trees

ripping the weeds from the cracks

in the pavement

i think i am finally strong enough

to demolish suburbia

bulldoze every house on this street

and see what they were built upon

We loved catching up with Elenia and we hope to see more of her poetry in the future!
