Cordite Poetry Review has three new names to welcome into the fold – Jacinta Le Plastrier, Judith Beveridge and Keri Glastonbury.
Jacinta Le Plastrier is a Melbourne-based writer, poet, editor, publisher and journalist. She is now Cordite’s blog editor as well. She has worked as a news journalist, feature writer and contributing editor for The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald, Good Weekend and other magazines. She is presently Publisher at John Leonard Press and runs an independent monthly salon, the Gilgamesh Modern Salon, featuring prominent and emerging Australian writers and thinkers. Her volume of poetry, The Book of Skins, is due out mid-2013.
Keri Glastonbury has joined the Academic Advisory Board for Cordite Scholarly. She is currently Senior Lecturer, Creative Writing at The University of Newcastle, Australia. Her research interests are Contemporary Australian literary sociability, re-figuring the ‘regional’ (both within Australia and in the Asia-Pacific), practitioner critical communities and generationalism. We’re delighted to have her expertise and eagerness on board (literally) here.
Beginning in 2014, Cordite Poetry Review will appoint an annual Feature Poem Editor who, once a month, will select a new work from Australia or overseas to get the online spotlight and with notes. I am pleased to announce that our inaugural editor will be Judith Beveridge.
