A Note for Publishers and Poets

Please add this site to your reviews list and send copies of your books to:

Martin Duwell
P.O. Box 4129
Amity Point QLD 4183

If you have been in the habit of sending copies to me at EMSAH, The University of Queensland, they will still get to me though it takes time and probably strains the good will of that School’s secretarial staff.

This site relies on receiving review copies. In its first ten years, while I was a judge of the Judith Wright Calanthe award section of the Queensland Literary Awards, I could rely on books submitted for that prize making up the gaps of those that had not been sent as review copies. I only discovered Peter Boyle’s magnificent Apocrypha, for example, when it turned up in the prize submissions.

Now that I have moved on from that judging role, I am more reliant than ever on receiving publishers’ review copies to the point where it is probably fair to say that this site will not be able to continue without a steady stream of review copies.
