What’s Poetry Got to Do… Got to Do with It?

Australian and international poets respond diversely to the question 'What does poetry do?' while referring to their own poetry practice.

This monthly series of public online forums brings together Australian and international poets to respond diversely to the question of ‘what does poetry do?’ while referring to their own poetry practice. Following brief presentations from the invited poets, each session concludes with a Q&A opportunity for the audience to engage with the speakers. 


Hosted by Rabbit: a journal for nonfiction poetry and convened by Jessica Wilkinson and Zoe Dzunko. Panellists include Bella Li, Keri Glastonbury, and Lachlan Brown.
