Rachel's grid for 'Drafts' (with Kate Lilley)
Renowned US poet and critic, Rachel Blau du Plessis, crossed the Tasman Sea to visit Sydney yesterday. She had been invited to present her reflections on the long poem and her own practice in writing 'Drafts' at the University of Sydney. This was followed by a reading of her poetry and, later, dinner in Chinatown.
You can see some photos of the Sydney occasion here.
