And talking of anthologies...

"Poets aren't always as generous as they should be. But as an editor [Peter Porter] was always immensely fair, and as editor of The Oxford Book of Modern Australian Verse, very inclusive. He was a wonderful poet." (John Tranter talking of Peter Porter who died last week. http://www.theage.com.au/entertainment/books/tributes-flood-in-for-the-poet-with-a-rare-mind-20100425-tlnm.html

A wonderful poet and a wonderful person!

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....
