‘Stay tuned! Nothing prepares you for the shock of a new voice in poetry, and nothing quenches that thirst better than a good dose of poetry. A poetry of place and sensibility can light up a whole landscape, and the poetry of Robbie Coburn does just that. In these poems we see him now in the very act of etching out the details, so hold on, and read on through.’ - π.o.
‘A very convincing multifaceted portrayal of the struggle with self and others, one that uses its contrasting imagery and analogy so well.’ - Ashley Capes

‘These poems about friendship and belonging - I’ve had them with me for just two weeks and yet I feel as much at home with them as with friends I’ve known all my life. Meg Mooney has the language to speak of silences and centres - and of breathing and heartbeats, the odd fact that one keeps growing older - and of country and time and how to listen to them. Like your other wise and wry and gentle books, Meg, this one’s permanent.’ - Peter Bishop
‘Honest, generous, wise and funny, Meg Mooney’s poems bring you straight into the gritty, idiosyncratic daily experience of life in central Australia.’ - Jansis O’Hanlon, Chief Executive Officer, Varuna, the National Writers’ House

‘With its beer-drenched Blundstones, cricket balls retrieved from neighbour’s backyards, misbehaving pastor’s kids and crabs plucked from the Moyne river, O’Reilly’s poetry collects and curates a series of vernacular objects and experiences that comprise life in Australia and beyond. From the streets of Ballarat to the dry highways of West Texas, from the floor of a petrol station in rural NSW to the evening sky seen from a Scottish beach, this poetry traverses continents, testing spaces and locations and finding them brimming with their own types of desire. Using a light touch and an elegant voice, Distance traces out nostalgia’s peculiar contours and emotional resonances, resulting in remarkable poetic moments that will return and whisper again to a reader even after the book is set down.’ - Lachlan Brown, author of Limited Cities
‘Joseph Brodsky, the Russian Nobel laureate, once remarked that memory and art have in common the “ability to select, a taste for detail”. In the work of Nathanael O’Reilly, memory and art come together to bring us poems that remember what cannot - what must not - be forgotten, in rich and telling detail and with a taste for quiet but incisive irony.’ - Paul Kane, author of A Slant of Light, Work Life and Australian Poetry: Romanticism and Negativity
‘Nathanael O’Reilly’s poems sound the major themes of Australian poetry: landscape, displacement, yearning, and above all a critique of cultural narrowness. O’Reilly’s plain-spoken diction is often laced with understated wit, but is given ballast by its principled grounding in lived experience.’ - Nicholas Birns, editor of Antipodes

‘The poems of An Indrawn Breath travel the continent and beyond - through road trips, wilderness, visual art, crime scenes, haircuts, and the complex landscapes of the heart. Telford’s voice is intimate, poised and compassionate. She knows poetry “is a precious metal / only mallets and hammers / can fashion its curves”. But her tools are unobtrusive - the precise music of these poems is always in service to their humanity. Before you know it, they may well take your breath away.’ - Andy Jackson
‘There is a refreshing clarity of image and refinement of purpose in Gillian Telford’s poetry that frees her language from convention. These sculpted verses are assured; they give voice to the uncertainty of the mind, to the fragility of our journey with nature. An Indrawn Breath is a wise, accomplished, courageous book. It walks a tightrope across the landscapes of memory and forgetting.’ - Michelle Cahill
