State Editor's Introduction, Kevin Brophy , single work poetry

'Poetry, in ‘stilling things’, as Martin Heidegger suggested in 1950, is nevertheless always restlessly active. These six voices are six stills from a fast-moving history of poetry in Western Australia. They are evidence that poetry can provide moments we can enter into in suspended silence while experiencing that movement and agitation so essential to important poetry.' (Introduction)

      '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)
