'In the 1970's, those living in the country outside Melbourne interested in poetry would occasionally hear of the antics of Melbourne writers taking their work public in interesting ways. Most of the news about them was sporadic, since their publications were generally small-press leaflets, broad-sheets. private magazines, and manifestos - often directed against each other, making what seemed like extravagant claims to constitute the real 'New' poetry, Or the most valid poetry for popular consumption. A degree of scepticism greeted their editorials and statements in those benighted places outside Carl-ton. Richmond. and St Kilda.' (Introduction)
