The Poetics of Place

Our experience of place is strongly tied to our interpretation of real or fictional stories, and our social and cultural worlds interact with our geography. Emerging poets explore the strong legacy of place-based writing in Australia and how to reshape these narratives. Delve into contemporary Australian poetic challenges, and ideas of place and our environment.
