"Foam:e has grown out of the poetryespresso email discussion group, established in 2001 as an open forum for poets to discuss poetry and poetics (amongst other topics) with their peers in a friendly and supportive, that is to say "creative", environment. It is styled on the early coffee houses of The Enlightenment that provided a space for creative thinkers and encouraged the open discussion of ideas." (Editorial for first issue.)
Contains poetry by both Australian and international writers.
Foam:e is available at www.foame.org and is archived in PANDORA.
