Ali Cobby Eckermann / little bit long time
‘In little bit long time we experience a true poet’s strong and singing voice… She has a tradition of innovators behind her - poets from Oodgeroo Noonuccal to Lionel Fogarty - who also experimented with writing the spoken word and creating new forms. When I first heard Ali read these poems I wanted copies immediately so I could spread the word.’ - Robert Adamson
Amelia Fielden & Noriko Tanaka (editors) / Poems To Wear: from Japan and Australia

Amelia Fielden (editor) / All You Need Is Love
‘Deceptively simple, the poems in All You Need Is Love touch the whole range of human experience: joy and sadness, pleasure and pain, enlightenment and illusion, love and loneliness. This anthology of tanka reflects the full spectrum of what it means to love, whether it be a partner, a child, a family member, friends, places or one's pet.’ - Patricia Prime, editor of Kokako
Amelia Fielden (editor) / Colouring In: The Four Seasons of Four Poets
'This collection, composed by international friends writing together, is so much more than a series of responsive tanka on a theme. Reading through it, we can share both glimpses of the authors’ lives, and the rhythms of their changing inner and outer landscapes. They daub from a palette of unfolding emotions and experiences to paint superbly crafted and memorable canvases for us to enjoy.' - Marilyn Humbert
Amelia Fielden / These Purple Years
A long while ago, I heard of an old Japanese tradition which associates the colour purple with the seventies, and endorses it as appropriate for wearing by people in that venerable age group.

Anne Collins / My Friends This Landscape
Bicheno to Cradle Mountain and beyond - this carefully crafted collection of poetry and essays, earthed and numinous, bound by location and a particular lived experience but infinite in intimation, exhilarating and deeply restful, is a small jewel of a work.’ - Terry Whitebeach

Anne Morgan / A Reckless Descent from Eternity
‘What is impressive is the ambit of this collection, the way Morgan explores with equal authority the natural world, history, mythology, the vagaries of humankind, and grief. A finely-tuned intelligence shines through these poems, which are lexically rich and jam-packed with precise imagery. Her poems marry the down-to-earth to the numinous; they make evident the breadth of Morgan’s engagement with life and with language, and her passion for fusing the two.’ - Kathryn Lomer
Annette Elliot / Secret Secrets
Secret Secrets is a unique insight into the life of victims of domestic violence. Told through the story of how an ordinary woman factory worker, wife and mother of three defied the odds and squatted in a government-owned derelict house earmarked for demolition, to set up South Australia’s first feminist women’s shelter.
