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.
