Anthologies and the visibility of the poem
Martin Langford, one of the editors of the new P&W anthology Contemporary Australian Poetry, is our current guest blogger. In 'Anthologies and the visibility of the poem', he writes "One of the impulses behind putting the anthology together was the sense that it was becoming increasingly difficult for good poetry to become visible." Visit the P&W blog to read 'What might an anthology of the future look like?' , 'Poetry and the Anxieties of the Narrative', and 'Free Verse in 2017'.
