The Winners for this year’s Henry Kendall Poetry Award have been announced,
and now the subsequent anthology has begun to be pored through
in hammocks, book nooks and beds across the nation!
The Way to the Well: Australian Poetry 2014 features selected entries into the national Henry Kendall Poetry Award 2014 as well as poems from Central Coast Poets Inc. members. With a foreword by Brook Emery, judge of this year’s Award, the anthology provides an accessible smorgasbord of poems of 32 lines or less. ‘One of the pleasures,’ writes Emery, ‘is coming into contact with a multiplicity of voices, interests and ways of thinking and writing. It is an opportunity to hear what the culture is thinking about the culture.’
The Way to the Well is a collection to dip into: see what you connect with. Or immerse yourself gradually, reading from front to back, until you feel the thematic current move you. Read the prize-winning words of John Carey, Irene Wilkie and Carolyn Gerrish, as well as other established and emerging voices from across Australia including Dael Allison, Brenda Saunders, Kevin Gillam, Roland Leach and jenni nixon.
