    'Welcome to the fourteenth edition of foam:e. Another bumper issue, packed with poems, reviews, an interview and a postcard.

    'There are poems, that the editors responded to very strongly, David Greenslade's poems so detailed, immediately likeable and weirdly domestic; Jill Jones’s poems with their ease and intellectual range. But a number of early career poets work really stood out and demanded inclusion so please check out Amanda Anastasi and Sumudu Samarawickrama’s poems.'  (Angela Gardner, Carmen Leigh Keates, Editorial introduction)
