It's National Poetry Week. See Australian Poetry's web site for details of events near you, such as 'cafe poet' readings, open poetry readings and performances at the Write Around the Murray festival in Albury. Follow @AusPoetry on Twitter for more.
To celebrate the week, last Saturday's Poetica program on ABC Radio National sampled writing by poets around the country. Writers featured included Michelle Dicinoski, Anthony Lynch and Fiona Wright as well as veterans like Bruce Dawe and the late Rosemary Dobson. The program is still available for listening or download.
