Matthew Heffernan

Matthew Heffernan is an Indigenous/Irish man, who was introduced to poetry through song writing and particularly hip-hop culture. Matthew has performed as a rapper in a variety of settings across the Northern Territory and Australia, and now draws on the idiosyncrasies of this art form as a basis for all his writing. Hailing from Alice Springs but calling Darwin home, Matthew writes from the perspective of love, curiosity and strength.
