He also has worked as a mentor with writers from the Richard Llewellyn Arts and Disability Trust.

gareth roi jones is a member of the dandylion collective, a small writers’ group based in Adelaide, South Australia. His poems have been widely published, including in Best Australian Science Writing 2013, and have been short-listed for many prizes. His solo collectionGunyah’ Healing was published in FSP New Poets 17. In 2014, he co-edited FSP Anthology 38 The Infinite Dirt.
