'Architecturally effervescent, pick up half under pulsates with the shock-rhythms of daily encounters. burrowes has an eye open to the traffic of life, and an ear close to the ground's music.' (Publication summary)Clifton Hill : Rabbit Poetry Journal , 2015

'‘Sydney Road Poems articulates the layers and structures of feeling and history in the course of a street in Melbourne, one which has been all too eagerly ossified as a gentrified playground of the bourgeois ‘hipster.’ These poems rescue and animate the site’s truths. Frascarelli’s is a committed work of resistance, and a fascinating work of art.’ (Ali Alizadeh)' (Publication summary)Melbourne : Rabbit Poetry Journal , 2016
'Holly Friedlander Liddicoat’s debut collection CRAVE is raw, skeptical, sometimes drunk, always fearless, and says ‘sry if this poetry ruins yr party’ to Sydney’s Inner West, as it flips the bird at real estate agents, SUVs and a plenitude of jerk-offs. It travels too—overseas, into the outback, into memory, through trips at parties and pubs, and the journeys of close relationships—all while documenting a coming-of-age.

'Jake Goetz splices Southbank strolls with explorer diaries in this jump cut account of Maiwar’s millennia of history. The poem meanders, like the river itself, from headwaters near Kilcoy, bending, switching back on itself before eventually draining into Moreton Bay as the poet grapples with colonialism’s brutal annihilation to find his place in the River City in the 21st century. It’s an ambitious first collection that makes a significant contribution to Meanjin’s mythology.

'Nadia Niaz dances worlds into being. Hers is a rich and heady
poetry, unafraid to play with form, spun for us across contrasting worlds, languages, time, customs. It’s a poetry to savour, gasp and marvel at for its spirit of sustained and generous observation.’
