Cordite is pleased to announce that we have once again received funding from the Australia Council for the Arts for contributor payments – including poetry, reviews, essays, recordings, images, translations and presenting new ways for Cordite Poetry Review to publish electronic poetry. The Australia Council for the Arts has been a longtime supporter of Cordite and we’re thankful that our relationship continues.
Cordite is also excited to announce that we have also received funding from Arts Victoria for contributor payments, publication production and exploring collaboration between poetry and other arts. While national and international readership of and contribution to Cordite Poetry Review has increased substantially over the past two years, production of the publication is now very much based in Victoria.
With support from both Arts Victoria and the Australia Council for the Arts, Cordite will publish four main issues and two special issues in 2013. Cordite looks forward to presenting new and established poets and developing new ways to present poetry – audio, electronic, written, visual – online.
Happy new year 2013!
