About Scott-Patrick Mitchell: Scott-Patrick Mitchell is a WA-based non-binary poet who is a guest on unceded Whadjuk Nyoongar land.

About Clean: In this volume, Scott-Patrick Mitchell propels us into the seething mess of the methamphetamine crisis in Australia today. These poems roil and scratch, exploring the precarious life of addiction and its sleep deprivation. From an unsteady and unsavoury life, we are released into the joy of a recovery made through sheer hard work. Clean is the first book in the Upswell Publishing Poetry series.

NB: this event will now occur online due to the Covid situation in Western Australia.
