The fourth and penultimate conversation in our Spring podcast, Crossings, is live! Today we’re stoked to share a conversation between Misbah Wolf and Rebecca Kelly.

Misbah and Rebecca met for the first time for this conversation. They spoke about the spiritual, musical and thematic influences within their poetry, and the idiosyncratic patterns and processes of their practices. This is a tender-hearted, down-to-earth conversation. We hope you enjoy.

Misbah Wolf is a Naarm-based poet, who is a hybrid artist, combining music, poetry, performance and art. Their current obsession is exploring the intersections of monotheism and alternative spiritualities through cut-ups, music, research and channelling and are currently writing what they have called an ‘auto-mythological’ fiction funded by Creative Victoria. They have published work through Peril Magazine, Australian Poetry Journal, Cordite, Slow Canoe, Solid Air: Australian and New Zealand Spoken Word, Mascara Literary Journal, Overland, Red Room Poetry and La Mama Poetica. Their first book was Rooftops in Karachi. Her new book Carapace was published by Vagabond Press in 2022. 

Rebecca Kelly is a poet from the waters of Darkinjung Country, currently situated on Wurundjeri Country. Presently, her work is fuelled by questions of class, being, identity and psyche.
