States of Poetry 2017 - ACT

Welcome to States of Poetry, a major project intended to highlight the quality and diversity of contemporary Australian poetry. Funded by Copyright Agency's Cultural Fund, this is one of the first federally arranged poetry anthologies published in this country. All states and territories will be covered with separate anthologies, each of them edited by a senior poet living in, or closely associated with, that state. The state editors will choose six local poets actively publishing new work (up to five poems per poet). The state anthologies will appear on our website with introductions from the state editor, biographies and remarks from the individual poets, recordings, and other features. The ACT anthology was edited by Jen Webb and features poems by Geoff Page, Isi Unikowski, John Foulcher, Kerry Reed-Gilbert, Melinda Smith, and Merlinda Bobis.
