Just back from the Poetry and the Trace conference in Melbourne.
A brilliant few days. Here are some photos of poets and presenters at various events - scholarly, stimulating, social and superlative.

   Susan Stewart giving her paper 'Trace of Rhyme' - her gestures shadowing
   the wall behind.

   John Tranter, in the dark,confessing his years of poetic filching with a nicely
   fuzzy, off-register picture of John A. & Jimmy.

                     Peter Minter & Gig Ryan
     Elizabeth Wilson reporting incidents of Kiwi misreadings to Wystan Curnow
                     Michael Farrell
   Rachel Blau du Plessis drafting with Hazel Smith & Mike Farrell. Bob du Plessis
   making mirth up the back. Rose Lucas (in red), is still convening, or not,
   with Jill Jones (seated on the left) at 11pm.
