Well-Known Corners

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 of invited poets, made up of festival friends old and new, in response.

Do you have a poem on the theme of 'Well-known Corners'?  

Submit a poem in writing  of no more than 30 lines to potm@canberra.edu.au 

Each month we'll post a selection of these poems here to join readings from our curated poets.

Many thanks to Paul Munden for allowing us to reproduce his image, and to Mira Walker for suggesting the title of the project.
