Night Writing

Author: Kathryn Lomer



 buy ebook 

A vivid new collection of poetry from the winner of the 2008 NSW Premier’s Literary Award – Kenneth Slessor poetry prize.


With sensual, fresh and graceful energies, Kathryn Lomer’s Night Writing is a collection that moves between the grounded and the whimsical. Each small gesture has expansive implications; each poem is jewelled with reflections and woven with slivers of insight and bright fragments of mirth.


Night Writing is divided into five sections: ‘The mother hand’, ‘Rainbow angle’, ‘The dark zone, ‘Eclipse plumage’ and ‘Holy days. The inspiration for Lomer’s poems have been drawn from landscape, (including some beautiful evocations of Tasmania), craft and creativity, motherhood, love and resilience


Night Writing is an invigorating new volume that is a welcome addition to Kathryn Lomer’s award-winning previous poetry collections, Two Kinds of Silence (UQP, 2007) and Extraction of Arrows (UQP, 2003).
