Poetry Shelf noticeboard: my giveaway copy of Fleur Adcock’s magnificent Collected Poems


          Victoria University Press, 2019


Thanks everyone who named one of their favourite Fleur Adcock poems and wrote a sentence saying why.

I put all the names in the hat and pulled out Tania Roxborogh! She picked ‘Advice to a Discarded Lover’ but also had a cool anecdote on the most widely picked poem, ‘For a Five year Old’

Congratulations to Fleur – who will be receiving the Prime Minister’s Award for Literary Achievement in Poetry tomorrow.
