In this exciting show, we bring two of Australia's leading poets together for an hour of poetry, discussion and debate. Joel Deane has won two national awards for his poetry and fiction. His novel, Another, and his first poetry book Subterranean Radio Songs both won the IP Picks award for best unpublished Australian manuscript. His latest collection is titled Magisterium, and was published last month by Australian Scholarly Publishing. He has also worked as a press secretary and speechwriter for the Australian Labor Party. Karen Knight has won the Alec Bolton Award, three writer's development grants from Arts Tasmania, and the Dorothy Hewett Flagship Fellowship Award for Poetry. Postcards from the Asylum is her fifth collection and was published last month by Pardalote Press. Previous titles include Under the one granite roof - poems for Walt Whitman (Pardalote Press, 2004); Singing in the Grain (Walleah Press, 2001), My Mother has Become (Picaro Press, 2003) and Doctor Says (Picaro Press, 2006). With Sue Moss, she is co-editor of Interior Despots - Running the Border, an anthology of women poets (Pardalote Press, 2001). She is also one of the five writers represented in Republican Dreaming (Bumblebee Books, 1999).
