Poet interviews

As I have conducted over forty interviews with Australian poets I thought it would be prudent to set up a page, listing the poets in alphabetical order and then linking to the relevant review and interview.

I pass on my sincere thanks to all of the writers for taking the time to be interviewed and each of them for their engagement with my high-level questions.

The series began by attempting to demystify poetry, approaching each poet in a non academic manner, having a bit of fun. Who would have thought that many years later there would be a body of work! This is a work in progress, I will add interviews (new and one’s I may have “lost”) as they are published.

Enjoy the interviews.
