The Vibewire Poet in Residence Program for 2006 is shaping up to be an absolute corker- after a brief hiatus in January, we are all set for a huge month in February, as Bronwyn Lea, recipient of the Val Vallis, Wesley Michael Wright and FAW Anne Elder awards, is judging our first batch of Poet in Residence submissions! If you'd like your work read by one of Australia's preeminent poets and poetry editors, then all you have to do is send us a selection of three of your best unpublished poems to create @ vibewire.net, along with a brief biographical note (100 words maximum). Please attach all submissions as Word documents (.doc) or Rich Text Format (.rtf) documents, and put "Poet in Residence Submission" in your email subject line.

She is presently a lecturer at the University of Queensland and the poetry editor at the University of Queensland Press.
Submissions close Wednesday, January 25th.
