      'States of Poetry – a major national resource – is the first online poetry anthology to devote equal space to each state and the ACT. The aim is to highlight the quality and diversity of contemporary Australian poetry. Funded by Copyright Agency’s Cultural Fund, States of Poetry is federally arranged. A senior poet active in the state selects six local poets, with an emphasis (not exclusive) on early- and mid-career writers and those still active in the poetry scene. Each year the cohort of poets will be completely different, offering a different snapshot of the poetry being written and published in each state. The individual state/territory anthologies appear free online, with introductions from the state editor, biographies, recordings, and brief remarks from some of the featured poets. Some of the poems later appear in the print magazine.' (Introduction)

Works about this Work

Introduction by Jen Webb Jen Webb , 2017 single work poetry
— Appears in: States of Poetry - ACT 2017;
'The ACT – home to fewer than half a million people, and housing less than two per cent of the national population – is a very small community, but one that is interesting, energetic, and creative. It is not particularly representative of Australia; the people are, on average, a bit younger, more likely to be employed, earning a higher annual income, and significantly more likely to hold higher degrees than other Australians. And it is, of course, the federal capital, which means that its life beyond the Parliamentary Triangle is often overlooked by commentators on this community. Despite this, it offers a fertile ground for the writing and reading of poetry.' (Introduction)
