Andy Jackson & Paul Mitchell

Andy Jackson and Paul Mitchell are Melbourne poets. Jackson's most recent book is Among the Regulars and Mitchell's is Awake Despite the Hour. They performed together in the Melbourne Writer's Festival in 2004 where guest judge, Jarrod Malloy (Collingwood Football Club), said, "I don't understand it, but I like it." He gave them a 7/10.
