Welcome to Country Rhymes
& the literary works of Australian Poet / Lyricist
Maggie May Gordon

From the heart of Australia, the western plains of NSW, come the charming works of the Australian Poet, Lyricist and Playwright Maggie May Gordon -- in collaboration with regional artist Faye Gardiner and various other home-grown and international artists.

The Country Rhymes Gallery includes A4 prints ideal for framing and special occasions, produced on high quality gloss card; and a range of books of "keepsake" quality which make ideal gifts for all occasions.

Once a Sydney girl, Maggie May Gordon has spent the majority of her life on a sheep property on the western plains of New South Wales -- a great inspiration for many of her verses. During that time, she has won awards for her poetry and short stories and has had her poetry performed in eisteddfods, schools and on radio.

Maggie May Gordon is also the original Author & Lyricist of "Eureka! the Musical" (Her Majesty's Theatre, Melbourne, 2004). Opening to rave reviews as part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival, Eureka! was extended 3 times after the official close of the festival. Eureka! was nominated for Best Musical in the Robert Helpmann Awards for Australian Theatre and also nominated for six Green Room Awards in 2005.

In September 2008, her most recent theatrical work "SWAG the Musical" (a love story set on the land during the Great Depression) was launched by the Cowra Musical & Dramatic Society to wonderful reviews and 4 nominations in the CATS Awards (Canberra Theatre Awards).
Maggie's lyrics have been performed in concert, on radio & television and released on CD.
