Frank Prem has been a storytelling poet for forty years. When not writing or reading his poetry to an audience, he fills his time by working as a psychiatric nurse. He has been published in magazines, e-zines and anthologies, in Australia and in a number of other countries, and has both performed and recorded his work as ‘spoken word’. Frank has now published sixteen collections of free verse poetry, including memoir, true life stories, what he describes as ‘picture poetry’ and books suitable for young children. He and his wife live in the beautiful township of Beechworth in northeast Victoria (Australia).
