I’ll be reading at this event to celebrate the upcoming release of Best of Australian Poems 2021. The collection is published by Australian Poetry and selected by Ellen van Neerven and Toby Fitch. Great to have a poem – Spare keys – from my recent collection Our Tongues Are Songs included in the collection. Details are below:
“Best of Australian Poems is a new annual anthology collecting previously published and unpublished poems to create a poetic snapshot of the year that was. Capturing the richness and diversity of Australian poetry, the series will explore how poetic responses to the contemporary moment develop with each passing year.
This virtual showcase event celebrates the anthology’s release, opening with a conversation between its editors, award-winning poets Ellen van Neerven and Toby Fitch. They’ll discuss their approach to curating the collection, and their thoughts on the state of Australian poetry today.”
It’s an online conversation/reading, you can book a spot here.
A fantastic chance to hear readings from poets like…Sara M Saleh, Ouyang Yu, John Kinsella, Judith Crispin and Shastra Deo
