When was the last time you gave your Beloved an unexpected gift AND you had nothing to feel guilty about?

And when was the last time that you discussed poetry at your book club?

Australian Love Poems 2013 is a diverse and lovingly compiled anthology with established names like Les Murray, Judith Beveridge, Cate Kennedy, Robert Gray… and Paul Kelly (for once without musical accompaniment), and less known ones, like my wife, who is currently working on her fist collection. My copy is growing dog-ears as I go through the 200 poems and mark – out of the 173 voices gathered here – the ones that speak to my heart.

This anthology is a work of love by editor Mark Tredinnick and publisher Donna Ward at brave new Inkerman & Blunt.

If you wish to hear more about it, you can listen to poet Lisa Brockwell talking about the book to Justine Frazier on ABC Radio.

Australian Love Poems 2013 was officially launched by George Megalogenis at Byron Bay Writers’ Festival on 4 August. It is available for purchase on Inkerman & Blunt’s website and at bookstores throughout Australia. The book was selling like hot cakes at Byron Writers Festival; get yourself a copy before they are all gone.
