Jordie Albiston

1 Titles
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.
