Australian Love Poems 2013

ALP_cover-180x220I will be among 173 poets featured in the forthcoming debut collection from Inkerman & Blunt, “a new Australian press dedicated to publishing books of originality, intelligence and beauty: fiction, non-fiction and poetry.”

 

Selected by award-winning poet and author Mark Tredinnick, new poets such as myself will be appearing in print alongside the likes of Cate Kennedy, Paul Kelly, Judith Beveridge and Les Murray, which needless to say, is dangerously ego-affirming.

From last Monday until the volume’s August 4 launch at Byron Bay Writers Festival (launch to be presided over by George Megalogenis, Australia’s best journalist — so that’s pretty neat), Inkerman & Blunt will be gradually revealing the names of each featured poet on their website and Facebook page.

You can also pre-order copies of the book directly through Inkerman & Blunt.

    • Hey thanks Kaitlyn. I was mostly chuffed to be in the same book as Paul Kelly! Hope preparation for your big (capital letters) First Show is going well 🙂

      • Paul Kelly, man!! Paul Kelly!!! That makes you Australian legend-adjacent. 😀

        Thanks, the First Show is trundling along! I think it deserves capital letters in proportion to how much it is taking up my life.
