State Editor Jen Webb's notes

Isi Unikowski came to my attention when he was shortlisted for the 2014 University of Canberra Vice-Chancellor’s International Poetry Prize. His selected poem was dense with imagery and, like his subsequent poems, blends the intellectual and the visceral. His work runs the gamut from modernist-style precision to what is almost comedic in its insider-outsider view of the field.
