AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jazz Money is a poet and artist of Wiradjuri heritage creating work across installation, digital, performance, film and print. Money’s first poetry collection, how to make a basket (UQP, 2021) was the 2020 winner of the David Unaipon Award. This transcript documents the in-conversation between Money and Sara M Saleh, a poet, writer and human rights lawyer. This exchange marked the launch of how to make a basket and occurred on the unceded lands of the Dharug people in December 2021 at Arts & Cultural Exchange (ACE, formerly Information + Cultural Exchange). This event was co-presented by ACE and Sweatshop Literacy Movement. Throughout their conversation Money and Saleh share necessary and valuable thoughts about poetry as a democratic form, the power of story in contributing to personal and collective identities and the ethics and responsibility of writing.' (Introduction)

    'We have had the honour of editing this issue as two poets with collections published and forthcoming with Fremantle Press, and invited by Cordite in the spirit of ‘shining a light’ on the thriving and amorphous field and bush that might be called ‘Western Australian poetry’. By virtue of the no-theme nature of the issue and the blind model of submission, the ‘WA-ness’ comes from where we were both editing on beautiful, unceded and sovereign Whadjuk Noongar boodja, and our attunement to poems referencing places utterly west such as Geraldton and Perth, of which there were many. We wish here to acknowledge the collective indebtedness of Western Australian poets to contemporary First Nations poets, whose wordcrafts and poetic knowledges profoundly shape the landscape in which we and various poets in this edition write.'
