    y separately published work icon Westerly vol. 66 no. 2 November 2021 23572116 2021 periodical issue 'Change is a rhetoric. Some of this is cheap or jargonistic: change processes, forces of change, fife-changing, changing hands, hearts, minds, spots, seas_ Some is more deliberate: the discourse of social change, policies of reform altering standards and conventions, climate change spoken of in terms of climate crisis—language used definitively to convey imperatives of action. But change phrasing is used (ironically) by conservative forces as regularly as those seeking something of revolution. With the uncertainties of global pandemic, growing awareness of ecological catastrophe and newly reimagined nationalisms, this is perhaps a realm of language ripe for creative attention.

    'Best of Australian Poetry is an annual anthology collecting previously published and unpublished poems to create a poetic snapshot of the year that was. Capturing the richness and diversity of Australian poetry, across a timeframe of 1 July 2021 - 7 August 2022, the series, now in its second year, will explore how poetic responses to the contemporary moment develop with each passing year.

    'The book opens with an introduction by its 2022 editors, award-winning and highly respected poets and editors, Jeanine Leanne and Judith Beveridge. Both Jeanine, a Wiradjuri poet, and Judith have extensive experience as poetry teachers, academics and poetry anthologists previously.

    'The Best of Australian Poetry (BoAP) series is published by Australia's national poetry organisation, Australian Poetry, and will feature two different guest editors each year, to amplify the range of voices selected. It is funded by the Australia Council for the Arts and individual patrons.' (Publication summary)
