John Muk Muk Burke
Mukky is a Wiradjuri man who lives in Wagga Wagga. Retired from a varied life of working for payment, he now devotes his time to thinking, writing, some voluntary teaching, caring for family and friends and encouraging others to more or less do the same. Mukky has a degree in English and Philosophy and both disciplines have shaped his approach to life and thinking. Writing for him is a passion but Mukky still believes it takes almost forever to learn two things: what to say and how to say it. His attitude is very much, ‘have a go’.
