ABR's NSW 'States of Poetry' anthology was launched by state editor Elizabeth Allen and ABR Editor Peter Rose, at Gleebooks in Sydney earlier this year. ABR's esteemed Laureate David Malouf introduced the magazine's first Laureate's Fellow Michael Aiken who read extracts from his Fellowship project, 'Satan Repentant', an epic poem about themes of contrition. Elizabeth Allen, then introduced the six NSW poets who contributed their works to the anthology: David Malouf, Susie Anderson, Pam Brown, Toby Fitch, Kate Middleton, and Fiona Wright.
