Poets Working Together

Paul Hetherington, Elly Mackay

Research output: Textual Creative WorksOther contribution


He regathers yesterday’s footsteps, walking past hedgerows and abandoned fields, taking the crumpled letter from his overcoat pocket and flattening its creases. The sun examines his hands, birds shrill and twitter. Her words are more obdurate than yesterday and still he fails to digest them. He begins to think of language as a difficult ascent – but gives the metaphor away. – Paul Hetherington, Typewriter

For University of Canberra Professor of Writing Paul Hetherington, poetry isn’t just his job – it’s a way of life. That’s why this World Poetry Day, UnCover spoke to Paul to find out just how engrained the art is in our lives.
