Red Room Poetry Fellowship 2019
Announcing the Red Room Poetry Fellow for 2019
We’re delighted to announce Jeanine Leane as our 2019 Red Room Poetry Fellow. Jeanine’s proposal ‘Voicing the Unsettled Space: Rewriting the Colonial Mythscape’ deeply moved the judges and we’re grateful to support this essential ‘reappearing’ of voice through the resurfacing, and rising of poetic stories on Country.
About the project
The Red Room Poetry Fellowship recognises the achievements and artistic goals of contemporary Australian poets. Now in its third 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.
