Prolific poet and editor Stuart Barnes has a new poem on Mascara Literary Review!
Chuffed to have a poem in Mascara Literary Review, edited by Michelle Cahill.
‘The Moon and the Mason Jars’ (for my dear friend Ruth Whebell) will also be published in my first collection, Glasshouses (UQP, August 2016).
While you’re at Mascara, check out Rose Hunter’s poem ‘el edén’. I’m currently reading Rose’s chapbook descansos (dancing girl press, 2015). In her foam:e review of descansos poet and winner of the 2006 Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize Angela Gardner wrote ‘[this collection] maintains its focus in a way that allows the reader’s mind to follow many paths without losing direction. The subject is serious and the gaze unflinching and honest. [Rose’s] ability to make language and image strange, ensures we look deeper.’
I’m eagerly awaiting Rose’s next book of poetry, glass (Five Islands Press, 2017).
