"Concisely invoking hospital and courtroom, Admissions is a collection of careful admissions about neurodivergent and medicalised life. While there are many contributions from leading poets and public figures in the 105 poems, lyrics, essays, and illustrations, others were gathered through an open Red Room Poetry call. The effect is a polyvocal show of force and difference." ~ James Dunk reviews Admissions: Voices within mental health in Australian Book Review
