The Australian Poetry Library
In June, Marie Bashir, the Governor General of Australia, launched the Australian Poetry Library which gives the general reader access to over 42,000 poems from more than 170 Australia poets. This is an ambitious project which hopes to encourage the wider reading and teaching of Australian poetry.
As a suggestion, start with Robert Adamson, Ken Bolton, Michael Brennan, Joanne Burns, Michael Dransfield, John Forbes, Peter Goldsworthy, Philip Hodgins, Chris Mansell, Peter Minter, Dorothy Porter, Kenneth Slessor.
