A Line in the Sand
For twenty years, Red Room Poetry has supported and commissioned Australian poets, from nurturing new and emerging talent to providing a platform for established voices.
In this special anniversary volume with a foreword by Ali Cobby Eckermann, A Line In The Sand, Red Room brings together over eighty pieces from leading poets and public figures in a retrospective that covers twenty years of the best Australian poetry.
With work from poets including Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Tony Birch, Dorothy Porter, Eloise Grills, Sarah Holland-Batt, Jazz Money, Omar Musa, Bruce Pascoe, Maria Tumarkin and Uncle Archie Roach AC, this collection provides illumination, space to speak and to listen, connection between truth and dreams, loss and life.
