Good to see in our newspaper this morning that local poet Joanna Preston has won the inaugural Kathleen Grattan award for poetry. This brings with it $16000 and publication of her collection, which I am eagerly looking forward to.
(OK, it's a rather pathetic headline. But at least there is some poetry news in the paper).
And here is Joanna's blog. (And she keeps chickens, too. I have to respect a poet who keeps chickens.)
