Stock - These Wonderful Spring Days

Jeremy Stock

These Wonderful Spring Days is a collection of work arranged in the order it was written, allowing for the idea of progress. It allows for the idea of progress in the sense that, even if there is to be none, it is nevertheless allowed for. Space is made for it, time is allocated to it.There is no visionary experience, for anyone, of anyone, in this work, it is all strictly material–material in the sense that it is a temporary and transient arrangement.


Stretchmarks of Sun

Dominique Hecq

Stretchmarks of Sun is informed by the crossing of borders—geographical, historical, formal and subjective. It explores autobiographical fragments drawing on the protagonist’s experience of dislocation and reconnection. It is poetry that draws together strands plucked from different disciplines, ways of knowing and art forms to reveal how home is made out of love and language.



Larissa Bird

The History of My Body is a meditation on childhood, adolescence and young adulthood by an emerging Australian female writer. This is a history of the merciless, well-worn path of encounters and accomplices: of family and friends, of education and confusion, of solids, liquids and gas. History traditionally pertains to fact, but the story of the body of Larissa Bird descries no such truth.


Out of Bounds

Dominique Hecq

Out of Bounds is a sequence of poems in three parts. It is a double story of dislocation that explores autobiographical fragments drawing on the protagonist’s experience of migration and motherhood. It draws together the two strands to reveal a subject at pains to re-define herself through language in a space circumscribed by sexuality, culture, and post-colonial politics. Succinct and astonishingly vivid, these pieces stretch the boundaries of language and literary form.
