On Sunday August 28th, Jessica Wilkinson and Bonny Cassidy were joined by publisher John Hunter, to launch their Anthology of Contemporary Australian Feminist Poetry at the Queensland Poetry Festival.
Eighteen months in the making, Jess and Bonny were commissioned by Hunter Publishers to co-edit this anthology of new work from around the country. Their editing process at McCraith House was supported by the non/fiction Lab, as was some of the book’s production and launch budget. Recently, Jess appeared on ABC Radio National’s PM program to discuss the anthology.
The QPF launch featured readings from the anthology by 5 of its Brisbane contributors.
A second launch will follow in Melbourne, at 6pm on Thursday September 15th at Collected Works Bookstore. All lab members and friends are invited to join Jess and Bonny celebrate this project with a diverse group of readings from anthology contributors.
