AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'For this issue of the Journal, my last as editor, I turn some focus on Tasmanian poetry. This follows the commissioning of an essay by Chris Ringrose on an outstanding Tasmanian publisher. I've foregrounded poems received from Tasmanian poets, and I gained permission by Tasmanian artist Julia Castiglioni Bradshaw for use of an image from one of her paintings for our cover. I could have included more Tasmanian poets, but a good three-quarters of the poetry content of the Journal has its origins elsewhere.' (Foreword : Introduction)

Walleah Press, Chris Ringrose , single work essay criticism
'I have been in good company recently, reading thirteen of the thirty or so volumes put out in the three years to 2015 by the Tasmanian small press Walleah. I have enjoyed the feel of them, their production quality and the vivid artwork that adorns their covers (and sometimes their pages), and enjoyed, too, learning more about the remarkable Ralph Wessman, literature enthusiast and driving force behind Walleah. The books offer readers personal engagements with a series of distinctive voices - invitations to share lives, landscapes, and emotional journeys.' (9)
