Martin Duwell on Australian poetry

Australian critic and editor, Martin Duwell has read and published a variety of Australian talent over the years. "In this interview from Stylus Poetry Journal's archives, he discusses poetics, historical aspects of Australian poetry, and talks about ... the anthology, The Best of Australian Poetry 2003."

I think its important in Australian poetry still that like Duwell, publishers are looking for 'a voice that doesn't sound like anybody else's'. This is what will keep Australian poetry fresh and alive.

Is the system being gamed, and "Does Australia Need an ICAC for Poetry?"

Does Australia Need an ICAC for Poetry?  David Musgrave's article in Southerly is not new, but it's worth reading if you missed it....
