Charlotte Guest is a Western Australian writer who has just published her first collection of poetry. Soap is a deeply personal collection of short works that Charlotte wrote between the ages of 19 and 24. Intimate and moving, the book touches on themes of femininity, feminism and family in a beautiful collection that goes beyond a mere coming of age journey to possess broader social relevance.

Claire caught up with Charlotte to talk about the book and pouring your heart onto the page.

But as I say, Ben’s career is common knowledge. We’ve been waiting for the perfect time to feature Ben Elton as our creative, and as his play¬†Gasp! is on now at the State Theatre Centre of WA, today’s the day!
