John Foulcher has published ten books of poetry. The first was Light Pressure (Angus & Robertson, 1983); the most recent, a selection of the previous nine volumes, was 101 Poems (Pitt Street Poetry, 2015). His work has been published in magazines, newspapers, and anthologies for the past thirty-five years. In 2010 he was the Literature Board’s resident at the Keesing Studio in Paris; his book, The Sunset Assumption (Pitt Street Poetry, 2012), was a reflection on that experience. He is at present completing his next book, titled A Casual Penance. He has also been also a secondary school teacher in New South Wales, Victoria, and the ACT.
