Synopsis   
“A diverse and fascinating sampling of the poetic riches of Naarm and beyond, Finding My Feet is a great labour of love and resistance, and a crucial chronicle of our anxious and complicated times.”
— Melinda Smith
Australian Council Literary Peer and winner of the 2014 Prime Minister’s Literary Award; Co-editor with Sara Saleh of Australian Poetry Anthology 2020 (ACT focus).


“Finding My Feet is a democratic free-for-all of voices in free verse and rhyme, of passionate statements, a Rosetta Stone of the people of Naarm/Melbourne – with their mixture of descents: Indigenous, including the great Tony Birch, European, Asian, Middle-Eastern Poets and others— gritty and speaking from the heart. I am bowled over by Lisa Gorton’s amazing “Aphrodite of Melos” and by Litsa Nikolopoulou-Goga, who turned 90 this year, relishing “this miracle of change,” and tells us, “I just sit and am embroidered by raindrops.”
— Geoffrey Lehmann
Literary reviewer for The Australian and winner of the 2015 Prime Minister’s Literary Award for poetry; Co-editor with Robert Gray of the anthology Australian Poetry since 1788.

“This anthology is such an inspired idea, drawing on the best work of established and published poets through to the new and emerging. So many diverse voices speaking the common language of poetry at its finest!”
— Barrie Cassidy
Chair Museum of Australian Democracy and former host of Insiders on the ABC.


“This is a glorious collection from a great city, showcasing all its languages, all its poets.”
— Elizabeth Smither
New Zealand Poet Laureate, 2001-2003.
