1 1 y separately published work icon Scar to Scar Michele Seminara , Robbie Coburn , Berry : PressPress , 2016 10650005 2016 selected work poetry

'Scar to Scar is an evocative collaborative work in which poet Michele Seminara responds to the work of Robbie Coburn, finding new texts within his poems. Initially begun as a means of extracting light from what were often troubling topics, the poems use the same language to create entirely different 'counter' pictures. The collaboration soon developed into a way of exploring the connection between the two poets, as well as their individual and shared connections to language and expression.' (Publication Summary)
