A Selection of Contemporary Australian Poetry: Beginning on October 4 and continuing on Sundays for the next several weeks, we'll be treated to Australian poetry, selected by Alan Wearne (left). Alan has been part of the Australian poetry scene since 1968, his main contributions being in the areas of verse novels and verse narratives with a more than occasional mutual seduction with the satiric muse. In 2010 he set up Grand Parade Poets publishing, which has produced six books. You can find his first column, with Ode to Karl Marx by John Forbes, here.
