Rebecca M. Newman writes poetry for children and flash fiction for adults. Her work can be found in Australian and international anthologies, magazines and popping out of the short-story dispenser in Perth’s Raine Square. After contributing to all those anthologies she thought it was time to edit her own, so she joined forces with Sally Murphy to co-edit Right Way Down and Other Poems. She is the founding editor at Alphabet Soup Books, and the primary school judge for the 2023 and 2024 Dorothea Mackellar Poetry Awards. When she’s not writing you’ll find Rebecca messing about with collage or playing Irish fiddle tunes on an old violin.
