David Bunn / The Great Scheme
These poems try to make some sense of our disquieting times - without certainty, without buttressing from religion or ideology.
Paul Williamson / A Hint of Eden
Williamson presents great images and plays so well with colour in this collection. His environmental poems shine with naked engagement.
Rodney Williams / Two Runs Alongside the Island
This collection is underpinned by the belief we should show greater care for fellow humans; for our world; for other living things.
David Kelly / planes, birds, cats, things
Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the title. Aspects of life, observation and appreciation are embodied in these poems.
Pip Griffin / The Climb Back
Poignant, sensual, spiritual, sorrowful, and funny, Pip Griffin’s latest poetry collection encompasses a life richly lived.
Magdalena Ball / The Density of Compact Bone
These poems are not only haunting, but haunted: by the sense of something undetermined gone missing and also by what is known to be lost.
For me, poetry is a symbolic form of language that embodies a multitude of meanings that are deeply sensed in the mind and body and require expression.
Robyn Black / No Straight Lines
No Straight Lines is a book of warm, but never soggy, poems. It is a book where empathy shines.
Charles Freyberg / The Crumbling Mansion
A dream/memoir, sharply observed, calling full blast from an era bulldozed and broken.
Kathryn Fry / The Earth Will Outshine Us
Kathryn Fry offers a kaleidoscopic dazzle of imagery from the natural world.
Stephen Matthews (editor) / Milestones
To read this collection from beginning to end is to take a poetic journey through the triumphs and setbacks of everyday life.
David Bailes / Black White Red: A poetic history of Central Australia
In 2002, David’s interest in the family history led to the discovery of the Aboriginal Bailes. David became very close to Billy Bailes, who was the senior member of their Aboriginal family. Billy’s stories and knowledge inspired David to write the fascinating history of their family.
Colleen Keating / Olive Muriel Pink: Her radical and idealistic life: A poetic journey
Olive Pink is one of Australia's unsung heroines. In this original and deeply moving biographical verse novel, Colleen Keating enables Olive Pink’s experiences with Aboriginal people in Central Australia to emerge with sensitivity, intellectual curiosity, understanding and grace.
Jack Oats / Sonnets and Sunshine
This third collection by Jack Oats pokes fun, casts doubts, evokes anger, brings tears, celebrates Australia’s natural and cultural heritage, shares hope, shows gratitude, gives love.
Brenda Saunders / Inland Sea
Inland Sea is a work which addresses, close up, the intricate wonder, the fragility and adaptation of the unique Australian environment.
Deb Stewart (editor) / Adelaide: Mapping the Human City
Close to a hundred poems by over sixty poets who will take you all over the city of Adelaide.
Helen Castles / Within the Light
Helene Castles creates exquisite imagery with beautiful word placement and choice of topic.
Elizabeth Goodsir / Like a Flash Eclipse
Against a back drop of bondless wild fire, poetry of losing and parting unearthing and resurging.
Doug Gregory / The Night is a Thousand Thoughts
The poems are honest, the language colloquial, as Gregory crafts candid and clever portraits of times past and of people he’s known.
Robin Sinclair / Upside Down World
This collection was put together during the long Covid lockdown of 2020.
