Street Wise - 52 Words 52 Weeks



There are many places to find yourself.

Not that you are lost

But to see yourself in relation to the world

During 2018 Tanya Southey and Denise Smith collaborated on a creative project - 52 Words 52 Weeks. Each week Tanya wrote a poem, based on a chosen word and paired it with Denise’s photography. The book will be launched in London in October and will be available soon for pre-order. Secure your copy of either, a coffee-table hardback, or a smaller sized paperback. Ideal as a gift for yourself or someone who has everything and loves words and images.


Nanoo is Ollie’s beloved grandmother and an astronomer who discovered the planet Terenza, in a gentle galaxy east of the moon. When Nanoo disappears on a trip to the Outback, Ollie cannot accept that she is gone. He is worried, sad and refuses to believe that Nanoo would leave him. He feels helpless sitting around on his farm with only his faithful Labrador, Chloe, to listen to his feelings. However, his luck changes when the Starchaser and his Star-fordshire Terrier, Buddy, plot a way to get to Earth from Terenza. The boys and their dogs begin an epic adventure to find Nanoo. Their journey takes them across the Outback, up the Steps to the Moon and into space. But will Ollie find her, and will he bring her home?
