Australian Poetry Journal 12.1—‘divergence, relevance’, guest edited by Esther Ottaway and Scott-Patrick Mitchell is out now. This volume is a special one for us, as it is the first in a new-look Australian Poetry Journal series, created by new, incoming designer Chris Edwards, with AP Publisher Jacinta Le Plastrier. There is also a tribute to Jordie Albiston, and a section devoted to new and recent collections by Australian poets, curated by AP.


We deeply thank the Australia Council for the Arts for funding it, within the national poetry journal that is the Australian Poetry Journal, and for the core support of Creative Victoria and the Cultural Fund, the latter who supports our publications program as it is linked to our many literary festival events.


Designer: Chris Edwards
