About the Author:
Matt Gardner’s poetry is a little untamed, sometimes a little unorthodox and absolutely always packed to overflowing with meaning and story. Then again coming away from those intense and often dangerous years on the frontline of trauma work, rehabilitation, and aboriginal empowerment it’s impossible to not look at things at least a little differently.
Inspired by his experiences Matt’s work is a mixture of uplifting moment, deep appreciation for those small things in our everyday, and crystal clear reflection. His work is highly emotive much like the man himself and his ability to capture a complex feeling in words is second to none.
