On Tuesday April 23, Brisbane New Voices IV will make its first steps into the world, as featured poets Trudie Murrell (Women and Cars) and Vuong Pham (Refugee Prayer) step out onto the gorgeously weathered boards of the Riverbend Books deck and debut the work from their highly anticipated collections.
Working with Vuong and Trudie has been a true pleasure, both of them showing an unflinching dedication to delivering a collection of poems that realised their vision. And as always, the dream team of Benjamin Portas (design), Julie Beveridge (layout) and Ben Aitchison (production) have made that dream real, producing a book that looks and feels like you want to read it… over and over again.I will be showcasing work from the collections over the next fortnight in the lead up to the launch and offering a one off Launch Price for ALS Readers, but for now, here’s the details of the launch. We hope you can be there to celebrate!
