'I became aware of Alison Whittaker’s first poetry collection, Lemons in the Chicken Wire, during the 2016 Queensland Poetry Festival. At the panel I attended, Whittaker wasn’t reading from her book but instead (like the other poets on the panel, Justin Clemens, Stuart Cooke and Natalie Harkin) she was presenting a poetic response to Dorothea Mackellar’s “My Country”.'  (Introduction)

    '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)
