To celebrate the launch of Michael Sharkey’s first edition of the Australian Poetry Journal, we’ve gathered together some of Australia’s finest poetry editors to chat about their craft.
An often-overlooked branch of literary publishing, poetry editing is a meticulous and valuable trade. Join host Lisa Gorton (Australian Book Review), Michael Sharkey (Australian Poetry Journal), Fiona Wright (Seizure), Kent MacCarter (Cordite), and Michelle Cahill (Mascara) online at 6.30pm, Wednesday 23rd July to learn about the skills required for the job, the changing face of the industry, and what makes each individual editor tick. The discussion will take place in the form of a free livestreaming video conversation at <digitalwritersfestival.com>
