We Need Art: J.M. DONELLAN

J.M. Donellan is an author, musician, poet, radio DJ and teacher. He nearly died of a lung collapse in the Nepalese Himalayas, fended off a pack of rabid dogs with a guitar in the mountains of India, and was sexually harassed by a half-naked man whilst standing next to Oscar Wilde’s grave in Paris. He scripted and voiced the internationally popular Pocket Hipster iPhone app – despite not having an iPhone. Josh was a National Finalist in the 2015 Australian Poetry Slam and has performed at festivals all over Australia both solo and with his band Poetry is Dead. His most recent novel is ‘Killing Adonis’ and his new poetry collection, ‘Stendhal Syndrome’, will be released later this year.
