Poetry from Byron Bay and Beyond (Anthology). “Reflecting on the important themes of life including confession, betrayal, surrender, rememberance, this collection of poems is a delight for readers. Like gems, small, precious, you will want to go back many times to enjoy the treasures found within.” – Jill Eddington. “Poetry that can take you to the edge, allow you to fly. With this anthology, Dangeroudly Poetic Press furthers its manifesto that poetry can be dangerous and subversive, haunting, exotic, enlightening.” – Margaret Bradstock.
Anthology of 18 local poets on the theme, Ordinary Miracles. “The bracing impact of salt breezes blowing from Coffs Harbour to Tweed Heads give this latest anthology from Dangerously Poetic a range of poems that cull the experience of those who live there, experiences that have been bitten and smoothed by wind then carefully crafted into poetry.” – Ross Donlon from the Foreword.
SOLD OUT Poetry from Byron Bay and Beyond “From the mad energy of Lel Sebastian’s razor-sharp From an old Hindu poem in the new Tom Robbins through the deftly handled tonal shifts and savage wit of Melissa Lucashenko’s Remembering Blackboys to Janice Bostock’s exquisite haikus and minimalist lyricism, and through every shade between, this anthology is a vibrant reminder of how, as Peter Porter has noted, poetry is both language lit up by life, and life lit up by language.” “What do we look for in poetry? We look for poems that move the heart or tickle the intellect or both. We look for rich and exotic language, for new and unusual images that illuminate, in a flash, some human meaning. We look for poems that establish, all over again, the connection between the Word, the Image and the Heart. This anthology provides all these pleasures and more.” – Shirley Walker.
