Cordite, Zombies Launch! New Renku

With the launch of the new issue, Cordite is unleashing zombies across the land!

The issue, edited by Ivy Alvarez, features a wealth of material from a host of writers (I wonder if ‘host’ is the right collective noun for zombies?) and I’ve barely scratched the surface – and personally I’m pretty happy to announce the following 3 things: my poem man about town is featured, along with an article that I co-wrote with Graham Nunn The Death of Poetry in Australian Classrooms.

Lastly, I was lucky enough to be offered the role of ‘sabaki’ or leader by David Prater, for the new renku at Cordite, the Zombie Haikunaut Renga! If you like haiku and renga, please jump on over and submit, we’re open to all, and it’s going to be a really interesting, modern renku.

Here’s a link to some guidelines I set up, hope to see you there!
