Peter Bakowski has been writing poems for 35 years, has received the Victorian Premiers Award for Poetry and writer’s residencies in Rome, Paris, Macau, Suzhou and throughout Australia. His poems continue to appear in literary journals worldwide. Peter writes clear accessible poetry. No matter how many books he writes in his lifetime they’ll all be about what it’s like to be a human being.
