Lyn Reeves: "Lyn Reeves’ poetry is characterised by a finely attuned feeling for landscape and for sensory impressions that accompany intense emotional experience, as well as by a keen apprehension of the tensions inherent in social relationships." —Angela Rockel

Adrienne Eberhard’s poetry is strongly influenced by physical and historical aspects of her native Tasmania. She is particularly interested in the ways in which places shape people, and is currently researching and writing poems with the assistance of an Australia Council grant, about her mother's family's convict past and her father's Dutch-Indies heritage.
