AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In Gen X-Y we'll be hearing four new poets: Josephine Rowe in Melbourne, Craig Billingham from the Blue Mountains outside Sydney, LK Holt from Melbourne, and Aidan Coleman from Adelaide.

'All the poets are in their 20s and 30s and have at least a first collection published. They read a selection of their work and talk about their styles, subject matter and influences. All of them place a high priority on the individual crafting of a poem and there's an interesting re-visiting of traditional formal structures in some of their work.'
