Mike Ladd is a wonderful contributor to Australia’s poetry scene; he is an award-winning writer, radio producer and presenter.
His latest work ‘Invisible Mending’ ranges across genres including essay, memoir, short story and poetry and explores themes of scarring and healing, connection and disconnection in the Australian community.
He says literature has a role of bringing people together, “it’s this wonderful communication where you can enter someones mind…it’s like an invisible community. One of the main things about literature is to break down barriers and loneliness and isolation of people.”
Breakfast’s Jennie Lenman spoke with Mike earlier this year at Adelaide Writers Week.
