Congratulations Joanna

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.)

Yes, the headline does make me cringe ... mind you, so do the "quotes". Argh. (Context, what context?)
