I have a poem due out in November with The Best Australian Poems 2011. The annual anthology is this year edited by John Tranter. He writes of his selections: ‘What a rich, strange and diverse lot these poems turned out to be … I suspect that these baroque and potent imaginings can only have come into existence as fragments of dreams or nightmares.’
Jill Jones writes about the mix of writers appearing in this year’s anthology on her blog Ruby Street, there she puts forward that the anthology ‘picks up on work that has either been published overseas or was fresh but unpublished’ and that ‘online international venues are often where the more interesting work is being featured’ and that Australia-based poets are now not so parochial and the anthology will represent this.
The Suns Fall at Zero, first published by The Delinquent in the United Kingdom, will be in the anthology and I look forward to reading the poems it will be alongside.
