Works about this Work

Waterfall Work Dominique Hecq , 2018 single work essay
— Appears in: TEXT : Journal of Writing and Writing Courses , April vol. 22 no. 1 2018;

'Not many writers have the gift of turning visual works into poetry that is not static. Still fewer have the gift of turning fine poetry into a good read. Amelia Walker has both gifts. This is not surprising: an emerging writer, Walker is highly regarded as a poet and performer of her own work, and has toured in Australia, India and North America. Her scholarly work and (auto)fictions have also won a variety of prizes. Her new book, Dreamday, is an unpaginated verse novella. You will not need page numbers. Before you know it, you will have found yourself unable to stop. Before you know it, you will have fallen under the spell of the speaking persona.' (Introduction)

“We Must Dream, and Honour Our Dreams, in Order to Live Actualised Lives”- Amelia Walker: Dominique Hecq Launches ‘Dreamday’ Dominique Hecq , 2018 single work essay
— Appears in: Rochford Street Review , October 2017 - March no. 24 2018;

'Amelia Walker’s new book, Dreamday, vividly tracks the contents of dreams attuned to phenomena that reside both under and beyond the surface of things. The poems retrace the events in one day of the narrator’s life, opening her private world onto the public sphere through a voice that is at once playful, witty, sensitive and assertive.' (Introduction)

— Appears in: Rochford Street Review , October 2017 - March no. 24 2018;

'Amelia Walker and I met at Friendly Street Poets sometime around 2005, I think, when she was still nursing and wanting to get out. As a ridiculously precocious and talented teen, she’d already attracted my attention with her tribute to the Adelaide collection Fat Streets & Lots of Squares. I was more than a little impressed that she’d already been published in 2003 when I was 50 and still-to-be-published!'(Introduction)
