by Anthony Lawrence

Anthony Lawrence’s stature as one of Australia’s leading poets was recognised in 2015 with the coveted Philip Hodgins medal, and is regularly reinforced by his many victories in poetry competitions: the inaugural Judith Wright Calanthe Award, the Gwen Harwood, the Blake, the Kenneth Slessor, the Peter Porter, and most recently the prestigious 2015 Newcastle Poetry Prize, his third. Headwaters is the fourteenth collection from a widely revered poet writing at the height of his passions.
