Best Australian Poems 2011

This is just to say…

One of my poems has been selected for inclusion in the Best Australian Poems 2011. This anthology is produced annually by Black Inc. publishing, and is edited this year by the very distinguished John Tranter. The last time I was in it was back in 2005 when Les Murray was editor. It is well known that Mr Murray and Mr Tranter have almost diametrically opposite views on poetry (and on the world in general), so it is kind of cool to have been selected by both of them. Note however that I am not yet famous enough to be name-checked in the cover blurb…

Here is a sneak preview of the one of mine that is included in the collection.

The Best Australian Poems 2011 is available in all good bookshops (in Australia, that is) from mid November. Did someone say ‘gift list’ ?
