NEWLY RELEASED VERSE NOVELLA:
Blight Street opens with a Foreword from the Honourable Chris Kourakis, Chief Justice of South Australia. In his conclusion, he states:
This is a must for parents, for teachers, for young adults and for everyone who has an understanding of, and sympathy for, human frailty and the raw emotions of the human condition.
Goodfellow provides audiences with a perspective on working class life in Australia today. He doesn’t romanticize or turn a blind eye to important issues like drug & alcohol abuse, domestic violence, issues of consent, blue collar employment, unemployment, generational poverty and how destitution can manifest in criminal behaviour.
Geoff’s message is strong: get an education because language is power.

POETRY AS PUBLIC ART
WE SO TOUGH
Here's Geoff standing inside the Adelaide Youth Court
with a framed poster of 'We So Tough' which has been
positioned to be seen and read by young offenders as they
await proceedings for their charged offences.

POETRY WORKSHOPS FOCUS ON:
drug & alcohol abuse
post-traumatic stress disorder
mental health issues
industrial & employment issues
200-plus Grade Ten boys seated in rows in our assembly hall for almost two hours… A Writers’ Workshop class populated by the most creative minds in the school… A classroom full of our most academically disengaged and at-risk senior students… A collection of teachers sitting in the staffroom with cups of tea in their hands.
…I have seen The People’s Poet, Geoff Goodfellow, captivate all of the above, holding them in the figurative palm of his hand and hanging on his every word.
