Eades wins 2018 Mary Gilmore Award

Quinn Eades has won the 2018 Mary Gilmore Award for his poetry collection Rallying (UWA Publishing).

The award was presented by the Association for the Study of Australian Literature (ASAL) at its annual conference in Canberra for best first book of poetry published in the past two calendar years.

Eades’ work was chosen from a shortlist of five announced in May. Rallying is a collection ‘very much concerned with the body, and the ways in which we create and write under, around, without, and with children’.
