Teaching & Writing Australasian poetry in the 21st Century

This is the companion website for a (now defunct) Facebook group of the same name. It is no longer being updated.


The aim of this site was to showcase the work of talented
contemporary Australian poets and their multimedia
collaborators, while providing students and teachers
with inspiring and stimulating resources for studying
and enjoying Australian poetry. It in no way purported
to be inclusive of all contemporary Australian poetry
or all Australian multimedia poetry available online.


If you're interested in writing, teaching or experiencing Australian poetry in all its forms (including song), you may find this site helpful. If you're a lover of poetry, whatever the language, tradition or media, please enjoy the offerings here.
