Welcome to States of Poetry, a major new project highlighting 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 have chosen 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 third of these anthologies to appear online is the Queensland collection edited by Felicity Plunkett and featuring poetry from Stuart Barnes, MTC Cronin, Lionel Fogarty, Sarah Holland-Batt, Ellen van Neerven, Nathan Shepherdson.
