Welcome ...

Peter Langston
... to the website of Six Nines Imagery. This site now incorporates all of the interests and creativity of Peter Langston. A former teacher, Peter retired in 2001 after twenty classroom years and has gradually been putting together a portfolio of interests which now form the activities on this website.

Peter is an established writer, having written on politics, sport, the arts and current affairs for more than forty years in a variety of old and new media but has a great passion for poetry. In 2009, he released his first collection "Six Nines" followed by "Head Full Of Whispers" (2012), "Straightening My Tie" (2015) and "While I Wasn't Looking (2017). A second edition of Six Nines was released October, 2015, as the original is now out of print.

Peter was a community presenter for the Black Dog Institute, specialising in presentations for adults about mood disorders and helping children navigate through teenage depression; and a spokesman for beyondblue where both he and Sue helped publicise the BeyondNow app designed to reduce suicide risks. He wrote regularly for ten years for his cricket website thecricketragics to a wide audience. When he is on the road, his travel website Travels With Pete & Sue and he has published articles with Time To Roam magazine. He has also been a guest on ABC Radio's Conversations with Richard Fidler and has appeared on ABC New England North West on many occasions.

His first play, Geoffrey, was bought to the stage by the Tamworth Dramatic Society for an eight show season from 24th March, 2017.
"Honesty and courage are the two human traits I admire most of all and I think Peter has both in the writing of his poems. He reached my heart and its a pretty well guarded one after seventy years on planet earth. We've got some world class poets in this country and Peter has gradually established himself as one of them. I would recommend his books to anybody."

"One of the most powerful guest speakers we have ever had in the short history of our club, Peter Langston a local Poet, Writer, Photographer and Designer, gave us a brief run through on Bi-Polar disease and some of the common misconceptions. Through a brief but frank portrayal of Peter's own experience with his Bipolar disease, his descent into life threatening experience, diagnosis and the struggle to find the right mix of medication and help to get his life back to a manageable state, he covered the most common issues and some strategies that we can use to help."

"It was the first time I've had live poetry on air and it left me unable to speak. The eyes welled, the breathing was gulped and I had no words to express how beautiful, intimate and devastating Peter's words were."
