'Selected by one of Australia's most acclaimed poets, this inspired collection captures the richness and scope of present-day Australian verse. It features innovative and exciting poems - many published here for the first time - from our best-known poets as well as daring and insightful works from rising stars.
Together they create a lively sense of conversation, of voices criss-crossing the continent, exploring the many themes that animated and inspired the nation's poets in 2010.' (From the Publisher's website)
'A diverse collection of poetry, short stories, song lyrics, novel extracts and illustrations from some of the most important creators today.
'This anthology for upper high school students follows on from the success of the collection Things a Map Won't Show You, which was aimed at younger readers. Susan La Marca and Pam Macintyre have gathered an exciting mix of original and pre-published works that cover themes of Indigenous issues, friendship, migrants in Australia, environmental impact, dystopia, sci-fi adventure and death.'
