"Coping" is a short creative non-fiction memoir about the experience of caring for my mother as she gradually succumbed to cancer. It appears in "Re-Placement: a national anthology of creative writing from universities across Australia", a book edited by Janie Conway-Herron."Re-Placement" is an anthology from writers enrolled in creative writing courses at universities across Australia. It is the fourth such anthology of work from members of the Australian Association of Writing Programs and the first to be hosted by Southern Cross University. Writing is an act of replacement where the writer's words recreate worlds of the imagination, re-presenting the world back to the reader. Tough, edgy, contemplative and humorous, Re-Placement moves writing out of the ivory tower and into new terrain."--Provided by publisher.
