Australian Poetry, established to bring together state-based poetry collectives, publishes the country’s national poetry journal, The Australian Poetry Journal. The Journal, published six-monthly, is guest-edited each issue by different voices to ensure excellence and inclusivity. AP also publishes an annual anthology, along with a digital volume showcasing U30s and emerging voices. Based at The Wheeler Centre, we partner with the major capital city literary festivals around the country each year, producing our own events. Annually, AP presents, commissions or publishes new works by 350+ Australian poets. We also run local and international residencies and mentorships.
