Wood's poetry is concerned with people and place. He writes out of his experiences and the archive creating illusive and allusive narratives that draw on a wide variety of poetic sources. Since 'In the Desert' was published in 2013, his work has appeared in Australian and international journals including: Southerly, Cordite, Mascara, Lunar, Plumwood Mountain. His poetry has been anthologised in Active Aesthetics and The Red Hen Anthology of Indian Writing.

Wood is currently at work on a book of poems about his youth. It seeks to answer the question: what kind of owl is his owl of history?
