    'Every year, Australian Poetry publishes this anthology : a selection of poems from its subscribers. This anthology does not claim to define Australian poetry at large at this moment. It does aim to recognise and mark the organisation's vitality and range. Australian Poetry, with its thriving biannual journal, its national program of events, and its membership of nearly 1000, is now a community of poets of different ages, from different places, working in different styles. This book of 60 poems exists to bring that community together.' (Forword)
