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.
