One third of a new book!

April 29, 2012

There will be contents...

The Canberra based publishers Blemish Books have just announced the line-up for the third edition of their Triptych Poets series. The poets to be published are Joan Kerr, Joshua Inman, and myself. This is terrific news, and I am so pleased to be published by a relatively new Canberra publisher.

I am not very familiar with the work of the other two poets, and intend to do a bit of Googling. One of the strengths of this series is how an unintended conversation between the different poets making up each triptych can sometimes be detected, murmuring away just below the surface. Such strange resonance is a good thing, as is the chance for the reader to explore three poets in some depth.

My suite within the triptych is called Selection Criteria for Death. The book should be out in September.

    Fantastic news Penelope ! Congrats.

  3. Awesome news, Penelope! Many, many congrats on the achievement. Very well deserved 🙂 I haven’t heard of the other poets either, so will have to look them up & have a read of their work.

  4. That’s great news! On this side of the ditch, Auckland University Press regularly publishes collections of three poets’ work in the AUP New Poets series – and they make for some very interesting and enjoyable books. I hope yours is just as successful!

      Thank you Tim! Hard to say anything intelligent when one is so excited. I’ll pass on the information about AUP to the Blemish Books people; maybe they could start a learned discussion about who invented triptychs (which is, as I understand it, a type of pavlova.) (-:
