Poetry is the art of portraying human experiences. Hollie McNish’s latest work, Slug, has been described as a ‘taboo-busting delight,’ blending poetry, prose, and short stories that delve into the human condition and the cycle of life. Susie Anderson writes at the crossroads of compassion and resistance, ranging from deeply personal to universally relevant themes. Broede Carmody’s FLAT EXIT centers on greetings and farewells, learning to release and circling back to retrieve what endures. These poems traverse romantic and platonic relationships, moments of personal triumph, and instances of shellshocked grief. Our poets explore the human condition with Jenny Niven as their guide.

Puisi adalah seni menggambarkan pengalaman manusia. Karya terbaru Hollie McNish, Slug, telah digambarkan sebagai ‘karya asyik yang mendobrak tabu’, menggabungkan puisi, prosa, dan cerita-cerita pendek yang menyelami kerentanan manusia dan siklus hidup. Susie Anderson menulis dalam persimpangan antara belas kasih dan perlawanan, temanya merentang dari yang universal hingga yang sangat personal. Karya Broede Carmody FLAT EXIT mengisahkan soal salam perjumpaan dan perpisahan, belajar untuk melepaskan apa yang telah pergi sambil berusaha untuk mengambil kembali apa yang masih bertahan. Puisi-puisi ini menjelajahi hubungan-hubungan romantis dan platonis, momen-momen kemenangan pribadi, sekaligus bentuk-bentuk kedukaan yang mengguncang. Para penyair kami menjelajahi kerentanan manusia dengan Jenny Niven sebagai pemandu.
