summoning friends
                      (one two   five)
celebrate those fugitive tones

The Red Room Poetry Fellowship recognises the achievements and artistic goals of contemporary Australian poets

We’re pleased to announce the Red Room Poetry Fellowship shortlist for 2019. 

This shortlist is a luminous reflection of the calibre of creative individuals that we’ve worked with over the past 16 years. A selection of their commissioned poems can be explored below.

A sincere thanks to all our poets for the time and energy invested in crafting considered applications. The panel has pored over these poetic aspirations and achievements at length.
