Meet Our Readers – Richard Falkner

Finally, we are delighted to welcome back Richard Falkner to the Hearth. Richard’s poetry will explore childhood, puberty and all its loves and losses through the role the sea has played as a liminal space as he grew up on the beaches of Brighton and Glenelg.

Richard Falkner is an emerging Adelaide writer who holds a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Creative Writing) degree from Flinders University. Currently completing an Honours degree, Richard writes primarily short stories – many which contain historical elements and feature South Australian settings. In addition to short stories, Richard has a comedic novel simmering on the back burner which will be the first thing picked up once his academic ambitions are fulfilled. Richard is a regular contributor of poetry, short fiction, and non-fiction to Empire Times. His story Suspension of Thought won the magazine’s 2016 Creativity Competition fiction prize.
