great to see tim wright’s poem ’emoticon’ awarded first prize in the overland judith wright prize for emerging poets. congratulations tim.

many friends in the awards this year too.

i didn’t even get around to entering this thing last year, despite it being one of the most relevant things i could enter. i mean, aren’t i one of those also  ‘participating in a poetic community/coterie/culture which, while definitely still a ‘minor literature’, manages to circulate across media and place‘?  (keri said that)

i must be less lazy. well, only in certain pursuits.
