Poet of the Month

Poet of the Month – April

Michelle Cahill is the author of Night Birds. Her collection Vishvarūpa was shortlisted in the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards. She has received awards and grants in poetry, including the Val Vallis Award, a Forward prize nomination, the CAL/UOW International fellowship at Kingston University, London and a Developing Writer’s Grant. She co-edited Contemporary Asian Australian Poets (Puncher and Wattmann).

Cahill is a sensual poet whose sharp poetic intelligence underscores her rich evocation of difference. In Vishvarūpa she invites us to engage with poetry, not as a closed field of experience, but as open to multiple imaginaries and states of being. Tina Giannoukos

With roots in Kenya, London, Sydney, Goa, and with remarkably expansive knowledge, Cahill challenges her reader with a range of references.Tara Safronoff
