New monthly Australian poetry podcast launched

The Poet’s Voice has launched a new podcast series, called ‘The necessary poet’, which presents Australian writers, thinkers and poets discussing the work of a poet they consider to be ‘necessary’.

The first podcast in the series is poet Chris Wallace-Crabbe on W H Auden. The second episode is writer Maria Tumarkin on Russian poet Joseph Brodsky, who tells of ‘the important role [he] played in her coming of age in 1980s Russia’.

The Poet’s Voice was founded to ‘enhance the role of poetry in the public realm’, and also runs events and publishes articles on poetry on its site.  It was founded by former Melbourne Writers Festival program committee member and literary awards’ judge Ellen Koshland, with literary consultant Nikki Anderson as the organisation’s associate.
