Andrew Drake & Martin Christmas / D&M Between 2 Men
D&M Between 2 Men is a collection of personal and vulnerable stories in poem format that examines some of the issues on the minds of these two younger and older poets.
Natalie D-Napoleon / First Blood
The poems in First Blood explore our sense of belonging, confronting the bodily, visceral, antediluvian connections that we share with our homelands.
May Morris et al. / Warm Corners
The Warm Corners women are connected by place and by relationship. All have spent time on the land called ‘Warm Corners’, shaped by the Jingalalla River.
Anthony J. Langford / A Refugee's Rage
Two stories. Two individuals. One journey. One destiny.
Melinda Jane / Nature's Nuptials
Traverse landscapes, ride in a race, cut skylines and paste metaphors on your lips. Melinda Jane’s poetical words are as refreshing as a steaming cup.
Brenda Eldridge / Connecting
Connecting is not a holiday travelogue. It tells how I made connections - connections that unified a lifetime’s experiences.
Kate Cramond / Beating My Breast: A diary of life and connection
If there are any perks from breast cancer, Changing Your Life should be one of them. Yeah, right. Nearly a year out from my diagnosis - just when everyone expects me to dust myself off and move on - I’m dull and dreary and utterly bogged. So I start a diary.
Marilyn Revill / Aubrey's Game
With his engaging wit, Aub was a fascinating character. Generous, talented and warm on one hand, he could also be austere, critical and unwittingly selfish on the other.
Colleen Keating / Hildegard of Bingen: A poetic journey
‘Colleen Keating brings to this impressive collection some very fine, positively Hildegardian qualities - a robust earthiness, an inner strength, a passion for justice and a fiery light.’ - Dr Mary O’Connell
Bernadette Anderson / Neapolitan Skies
'Neapolitan Skies is a stunning collection of intelligent, observant and emotive poetry.' - Jude Aquilina
Carol Patterson / State of the Heart
Carol Patterson’s arresting style infuses her short stories with fresh, vibrant life.
Dominic Kirwan / The Holy Babble
The Holy Babble is a sumptuous feast for the imagination. In this Hieronymus Bosch style drive-through, Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny steal the Christ myth. Panty thieves, monkeys chained to word processors, and rebellious talking ants inhabit decrepit fringes of the city of Moralpanik.
John Egan / The Mahogany Ship
Was the Mahogany Ship, first sighted in 1836, half-buried in sand dunes in the south-east of Victoria, the wreck of a Portuguese caravel?
Elaine Barker / See My Feathered Fingers
‘There is a Zen-like stillness in Elaine Barker’s new collection which is always assured in its clear notes. There are new experiences in Asia and a willingness to reference other forms of art, which inspire deep meditation. Her poetry issues an arresting peace.’ - Brian Castro
Catharine Steinberg / Poems from the Cradle of Dreams
These poems have been selected from those written between 2014 and 2018.
Brian Hungerford / She Said She Knew What Side of the Family That Came From
Brian Hungerford is an award winning author and one of the World’s most experienced storytellers, in the oral tradition.
Liz Newton / The Firing Line: A memoir of a family ablaze
The Firing Line is the compelling true story of a girl growing up with her family from the mid-1950s.
Deb Stewart / The White Line of Language
'The maturity of these poems, combined with the poet’s belief in the redemptive power of poetry, is a cause for celebration.’ - Syd Harrex (praise for Shadow Selves)
Christina Houen / This Place You Know
Hay, New South Wales, 1923. Martha, a classics scholar from the coast, comes to teach in a man’s town in the outback. She falls in love with Henry, a local man, and they find their dream place on the river where they raise a family and breed a flock of sheep with fine wool. The unforgiving climate erodes their dreams.
Adèle Ogiér Jones / Counting the Chiperoni
Chiperoni: term for a kind of fog, drizzle rain, experienced in the Shire Highlands of southern Malawi during the cold, dry season; name derived from Mount Chiperone, an isolated mountain peak at the southern extremity of East African mountain ranges, covered with montane forests and surrounded by deciduous woodlands.
