wooing a lady through an attorney


Poet friend and Max-Mo collaborator Amelia Walker (currently in The Netherlands) has started a great bilingual poetry website called ‘Vrijage een dame via een advocaat‘ (“wooing a lady through an attorney”). Her intent is to introduce some of her favourite Oz poets to a Netherlands audience, improve her own Dutch and get a bit of cross-cultural dialogue going. Australian poets so far are Andy Jackson and Deb Matthews-Zott.

Good luck with the project Amelia!
