i was reading my review section of the australian yesterday, & perused with interest an article on the current state of aus. poetry (apparently it’s bad, but, some have hope, & some don’t). anyway it was good at least to see some names i know: michael crane was in there talking about one of his newer upcoming projects (poetry idol); also nicholas manning got a mention for continental review.

but i think i just wanted a more thorough engagement with the subject, which you’re not going to get in a newspaper. couldn’t there at least be links to the online sites though, along with prompts to readers to check out what’s happening for themselves?
