Notes

  • 'Poetry Without Borders was a reading event intended as a movement away from "multi-culturalism" and towards a more transnational or inclusive expression of contemporary poetics.' [Source: Sydney Writers' Festival 2008 online program]
  • 'This anthology Poetry Without Borders offers and articulates so many different interpretations, expressions, and translations of the concept and realities of 'borders', in both their presence and absence. [...] The fact that this anthology was in part generated from last September's 'Poetry Without Borders' Reading at Customs House, Circular Quay, where the disturbing wire barriers constructed for the Apec Summit were visible to all who attended, gives this collection a special aura and pertinence.' Joanne Burns, April 2008 -- Back cover
  • Launched by Judith Beveridge at the 2008 Sydney Writers' Festival.
