Australian Poetry Journal: Beginnings edited by Bronwyn Lea

Bronwyn Lea has chosen ‘Beginnings’ as the theme for the first issue of Poetry Australia’s new journal. The Editor has some interesting things to say about a poem’s ‘beginning’ in her Foreword, but the journal doesn’t as yet have the feel of something fresh, lively, and distinctive that a beginning promises. It is as if the title doesn’t apply to the publication as a whole. This creates a certain tension in the reader.
