Albiston, Jordie

Jordie Albiston has published eight poetry collections, and a handbook on poetic form. Two of her collections (Botany Bay Document  – retitled Dreaming Transportation  – and The Hanging of Jean Lee) have been adapted for music-theatre: both enjoyed recent seasons at the Sydney Opera House. Jordie works within formal boundaries: traditional, experimental, or self-imposed. She seeks the musical cadence while endeavouring to exact a mathematical sense of existence. Often she utilises archival sources from which to wrest a kind of documentary cataloguing; other times she refers to an internal witness of experience. Her poetics are highly charged with vertigo, and doubt. Jordie's work has won a number of awards, including the Mary Gilmore Award and the NSW Premier's Literary Award. She lives in Melbourne.<#InMedia#><#AuthorVideo#><#AuthorWebsite#><#AuthorTwitter#><#AuthorFaceBook#>

Jack & Mollie (& Her)

Picture of Jack & Mollie (& Her)
A striking new work from one of Australia’s most inventive poets. Vibrantly playful and formally extraordinary, Albiston’s exuberant long poem captures the voices of two very likeable dogs and their unlikely owner, offering a gloriously oblique portrait of the canine adventures that map a household.
