Showcase of Tasmanian Poetry


The Write Stuff is pleased to give you a taste of the work of some Tasmanian poets. This area is snapshot only, of poets working in Tasmania between 2002 and 2004. It does not aim to be a complete representation of the many poets currently living on this island.

The Write Stuff is indebted to Ron Moss, award-winning Haiku poet and artist,
for allowing his haiku paintings to be used in this showcase.


A permanent archive at The State Library of Tasmania's Our Digital Island ensures long term access to the content below. The National Library of Australia's Pandora project has periodically archived this site since the late 1990s.
