my body is crucifix now
and though rigid against the clay
only my handprint remains

The Red Room Poetry Fellowship recognises the achievements and artistic goals of contemporary Australian poets. Now in its second year, the Fellowship was established to foster poetic and professional development of an individual within the wider poetic community, encouraging poets to undertake an intensive period of creative development involving a range of commissions, residency, recordings and publication outcomes.

Applications are open only to poets previously commissioned by Red Room Poetry. There is no cost to apply.
