The New Line: A Portfolio of Australian Prose Poetry

Katharine Coles

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


In September 2015, I was at the University of Canberra for the International Poetry Studies Institute's annual Poetry on the Move conference, where I attended a reading by Australian poets Cassandra Atherton, Owen Bullock, Monica Carroll, Jen Crawford, Paul Munden, Shane Strange, and Jen Webb (all of whom appear in this issue of Western Humanities Review), who had been participating in the Prose Poem Project, an on-line call-andresponse collaboration comprising over 20 poets mostly from Australia. A little jet-lagged still, I was jolted awake by the energy and variety of the poems being performed, recently gathered into a book called Seam, published by Recent Work Press and shepherded into print by Shane Strange. Seam was the first of three books so far produced out of the collaboration.
