Portrait of Angela Smith

Angela Smith

Angela Smith’s first poetry collection The Geometry of Flight (Pulse Publications) has been described by poet Bruce Dawe as ‘free verse at its finest’.

Her work has been published widely in literary journals and broadcast on radio. It has featured on Melbourne trains and screened at Federation Square during the 2010 Melbourne Writers Festival. She was awarded two Young Adult Fiction Residencies at Varuna, The Writers’ House.

Angela’s poetry explores inner worlds of memory, love and longing as well as the physical landscape. A sequence in The Geometry of Flight reflects on her experience of cancer.

Angela lives in Melbourne.
