In our November issue, we had a feature ‘Poems from Around Australia’ in which I, as editor, set myself the task of selecting just one poem from each state in the country. I chose these poems anonymously from the increasing number of poems we now receive here at Sotto Magazine.
For this issue we received eighty poems from thirty five poets and the standard was remarkable. So, we’ve decided to introduce ‘Poems from Around Australia’ as a regular feature in Sotto Magazine. From now on we will select one poem from a member poet living in each state of Australia from all the poems submitted for consideration in each issue.
Poems will also be chosen for publication throughout Sotto Magazine, but we’ve also decided that all unsolicited poems we publish must be by members. So, make sure your membership is up to date if you want your poem considered either in ‘Poems from Around Australia’, or in the magazine generally.
Here are the poems selected from each state for March 2013.
