Steve's unauthorised tribute Wendy bio: Wendy Fleming has been on the Melbourne Poets Union committee for a very long time. She has been a dedicated champion and is widely considered to be an enigma within the poetry community (“What's she building in there?”*).
Within the MPU Wendy has had a variety of roles – we believe she has been President, Secretary, Treasurer and 'Godhead' at various points. Wendy did Not write this bio. In 2014 MPU published Wendy's chapbook 'Backyard Lemon' which has been very positively reviewed and is still available (you should buy it).
