June to November, 2020
2020’s outbreak of COVID-19 has meant many of us have been forced into an extended period of being ‘at home’. Well-Known Corners asks a group of international and Australian poets to respond to this concept of ‘home’ during this time. Is it a period of mourning, of endurance, of restraint? Or is it a chance to chart the familiar, the forgotten – to re-establish connections with the self and others in our immediate circle? Are there routines to follow, objects to ponder, new discoveries to be made?
Through the rest of 2020, we'll be posting videos of the poets' responses.
Do you have a poem on the theme of 'Well-known Corners'?

Each month we'll post a selection of these poems here to join readings from our curated poets.
This year's series of Poetry on the Move poetry workshops will be run completely online in a 'slow' workshop mode. Facilitated by poets Owen Bullock, Subhash Jaireth, Lucy Alexander and Melinda Smith, each workshop is scheduled to run over the course of a week. The workshops will be free of charge, though limited to 20 participants each. Details of how to register and participate to follow.
