Poetry Titillations Part 2

Toby Fitch

Here are some more forthcoming Australian poetry titles to get into a state about. It’s difficult to be comprehensive when compiling a list about the future, especially when that future is poetic, and extra-especially given that poetry publishers, thankfully, aren’t as media-hungry as politicians. So, there are more books in the works without titles or funding yet, but they’ll be a nice surprise when they flash us later in the year.

NB: If any publishers want to add to this list, feel free to contact me or use the comments field below.

    I’m hoping I might be one of the 3 Triptych Poets mentioned. I mailed off my poems for consideration a week ago.
