Borderless (Recent Work Press 2021) presents a collection of brand new, specially commissioned poems from a wide range of contemporary poets reflecting on feminism in its broadest sense. The voices of First Nations, refugee and migrant poets are a deliberate focus in this book. These poems plunge the reader deep into the experience of life in the world, at this moment, in a woman’s body, and explore multitudinous versions of what that can mean.
All proceeds from the sale of Borderless will go towards a Borderless scholarship for the support of a vulnerable Hazara refugee woman from Afghanistan, who has survived Nauru, been medically evacuated to Australia and is now enduring lockdown in Sydney.
