Poets of Australia and NZ – we want you!

August 7, 2012

100 years from Gallipoli Poetry Project

The objectives of the 100 Years from Gallipoli Poetry Project are:

To use new poetry written by today’s poets to illustrate the diversity of current views about Australia’s and New Zealand’s commemorations and anniversaries of military history and how these influence, or have influenced, modern society;

To provide an opportunity for today’s poets from Australia and New Zealand to express their thoughts and ideas about how their nations’ commemorations and anniversaries of military history, together with the emotions these evoke, are reflected in modern society; and

To contrast these modern views with those from the past by including poems from the 19th and 20th centuries and the early years of this century.

The principal outcome will be a Publication containing 200 poems. There will be 100 newly written and previously unpublished poems appearing alongside 100 older poems. The publications will contain 100 photographs of war memorials from country areas of Australia and New Zealand.

There is also a POETRY COMPETITION.
