The Pocketry Almanack
A poetry journal for emerging and aspiring poets who haven’t been published in a literary journal and have been rejected multiple times by literary journals. The pocket-sized compendium comes out twice a year and features poems by up to six different poets as well as original artwork.
Lakshmi's collection will be published as an A6 sized instant book by Pocketry. It will be available to purchase in Pocketry's online shop.
There were three highly commended entries:
earthlings by Kristina Deminick,
Beyond the eucalypts by Steph Amir and
Clear Answers by Zoe Simmons.
Pocketry Presents A Poetry Podcast
Pocketry Presents is the brand new poetry podcast that finds out what goes on in poet's minds and just how they deal with writer's block. Host, Indrani Perera, brings you interviews with established poets about their creative process as well as getting published, performing and winning awards. We also hear episodes in which established poets read their work and Indrani explains the techniques they used in their poem.
Twice a year in special Pocketry Almanack episodes you can hear the emerging poets published in the Almanack reading their own work as well as a message from the artists featured in the issue. You'll also hear some of the unusual words and intriguing stories that have been bartered for copies of The Pocketry Almanack.
Featured poets in season one include Kevin Brophy, Emilie Collyer, Angela Costi, Es Foong, Dominique Hecq, Scott-Patrick Mitchell, David Munro, Melizarani T Selva, Dr Mark Tredinnick and Thabani Tshuma.
