Eddy Burger

Description:
I am a 46 year old Northcote writer of funny and experimental fiction, poetry, performance poetry, short plays and zines. I am chief of local writing group The Word Addicts. My writing has been published in Australian and overseas journals and my spoken-word has appeared on CD anthologies and websites. In 2007, the Melbourne Poets Union published a chapbook of my poetry entitled Funny & Strange, and in 2009, Small Change Press will be publishing my poetry collection Impressions of me. I have been a featured reader at many readings and literary festivals over the past 14 years, locally and interstate. A journalist for The Age once described my style as ‘erratic, operatic and completely mesmerising. Edward Burger can make a smoky bar feel like the Berlin opera’. I do like to combine art-forms, such as opera with spoken-word. Many of my stories are illustrated and I dabble in visual and concrete poetry. My writing is weird, humorous, satirical, postmodern, surreal and/or anti-realist. My style and subject vary but I am frequently concerned with subverting notions of normality and promoting difference, portraying the collision of modern-day concerns through confused visions of the world, and I have a human vs environment obsession. I am currently seeking a publisher for a novel, novella and a number of short story collections.
