Red Room Poetry Fellowship
With immense pleasure, we welcome Michelle Cahill as our Fellow for 2020.
Our warmest congratulations to Michelle, our incredible shortlisted poets Gloria Demillo, Jill Jones, Toby Fitch, Scott-Patrick Mitchell, Nicole Smede, Luke Fischer, Mark Tredinnick, Zenobia Frost and Jessica L Wilkinson, and all those who applied with such originality and creativity.
We're excited to be partnering with Copyright Agency to bring you a reimagined Poetry Object in 2020. Creating a new space for poets to shape the worlds around them, Poetry Object is Australia’s largest free online poetry-writing competition for young people and their teachers.
This year, we also bring an inspired Poetry Object New Zealand standalone competition, now open for submissions.
