AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Just one of the many really interesting trails that thread through the seeming wilds of Australian poetry over the last two or so decades (cripes, has it been that long?) is the slow, constant morphing one of Cordite. Sydney poets Adrian Wiggins and Peter Minter, founders of Cordite Poetry and Poetics Review, launched their first issue in 1997. After five issues in a broadsheet format and an oscillating editorship that included Margaret Cronin and Jennifer Kremmer, the editorship was handed over in 2005 to David Prater, whose key innovation was to appoint guest editors for mini- and, later, entire issues.'

    '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)
