'On 25 May 2011, the Australian Poetry Library website (www.poetrylibrary.edu.au) was launched at Government House, Sydney, by the Governor of New South Wales, Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir. The launch was the culmination of several years of work by a number of individuals, a process that inevitably involved many creative judgments, as well as many adjustments along the way.'

The Value of Making : Traditional Form and Narrative in Australian Poetry since the Digital Revolution Tegan Schetrumpf , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Axon : Creative Explorations , July vol. 4 no. 1 2014;
'In this essay I outline some broad structural and cultural aspects of the digital revolution which may contribute to the renewal of traditional form and narrative in Australian poetry as an expression of the millennial value of making. Firstly, that making traditional poetic forms is partly a response to the structural limitations of websites and e-readers, and culturally a response to the remediation of poetry to the perceived temporality and instability of the internet. I briefly associate Manovich’s argument that the database is the enemy of the narrative with the new ‘empirical turn’ in the humanities and suggest that strongly narrative poetry is reacting against the digital preference for the number. Finally I note the strategies of a smooth grammatical line and ‘bardic’ stance as a way for ‘professional’ authors to differentiate themselves from online amateurism.' (Publication abstract)
