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'.
Contemporary Australian Poetry
In the past 25 years, Australian poetry has reached a remarkable level of achievement. Never has the quality been stronger, nor the number of distinctive voices greater. The best poetry produced in this country is world-class.
Puncher & Wattmann recently published Contemporary Australian Poetry, bringing together this extraordinary accomplishment.
