‘Nearly every writer here seems wary of the risks of putting something on the record and into the crosshairs of the governable. The space between the lines is heavy with purposeful omissions as well as inherited silences.’
I reviewed the latest Liminal anthology, Against Disappearance (ed. Leah Jing McIntosh and Adolfo Aranjuez), for The Saturday Paper.
Liminal Vol. II is sickening in chartreuse with 200 pages of Asian Australian excellence across art, writing & conversations. And it features my first collage: six pages of archival treasures and commentary on Chinatown from the 1800s to the 1980s. Buy it here.
Hot off the press! n-SCRIBE 15 is an anthology of 40 works by Darebin writers and artists (including cover artist Tama Sharman) that you can pick up in Darebin libraries, cafes and bookstores for free.
In case you missed it, my poem ‘Still life’ appears in Best of Australian Poems 2021, the Australian Poetry anthology edited by Ellen van Neerven and Toby Fitch. Ask for it at your local bookstore or library or order it online.
