Andrew Burke was born in Victoria in 1944, but raised in Western Australia. He started writing poetry at twelve under the influence of Milton et al, and went modern at fourteen after reading Eliot, Pound and Williams. Since the mid-Sixties, Burke has been published in magazines and newspapers, and has six collections of poetry published.
