There is healing in this poetry.
These are our words.
From our country.
Our lands. Our spirits.
For all the troubles we face every day, we are a passionate people.
When we hear these poems, we know, we are lovers of life.
After selling out its first three print runs and having poems selected for Best of Australian Poems 2021 by Australian Poetry, a second edition of this beautiful anthology was needed! It is being released on the new imprint of Running Water Community Press (formerly Ptilotus Press) from Mparntwe Alice Springs and features poems written by over twenty Arrernte women around the refreshing Arrernte concept of Lyapirtneme.
This second edition includes an additional poem by local heroines, MK Kemarre Turner (Arrernte Elder and author) and Maureen Jipiyiliya Nampijinpa O’Keefe (Warlpiri/Kaytetye author), as well as a reinvigorated design by award winning book designer, Gemma Banks. It is an important contribution to the growing body of First Nations literature, particularly from remote Australia.
