Queensland University of Technology
Poetry Object, 2016
Queensland University of Technology is a highly successful Australian university with an applied emphasis in courses and research. While they are based in Brisbane, Queensland, we have a global outlook. With some 45,000 students, including 6,000 from overseas, and an annual budget of more than $800 million, they are positioned to grow and develop as one of Australia's leading universities.
Acclaimed poet Zenobia Frost will lead 50 pre-service teachers in a special professional development event held in partnership with the Queensland University of Technology. As part of the University’s extensive teaching program, teaching students are required to take professional experience placements. Zenobia will assist these budding teachers in preparing for these placements using our Poetry Object Creative Resource as a lens to teach poetry. Read her poem Civic Duty here.
Zenobia Frost is a Brisbane-based writer who was recently shortlisted in the Judith Wright Prize. Her poems have been commissioned by Red Room Company, ABR States of Poetry and the Commonwealth Games Festival. A Queensland Literary Awards Writers Fellowship supports her work through 2018.
