Last year's catalogue

Here's a book that holds you close and says “it’s okay, things are weird”. Alli's poetry explores what it takes to be in and amongst bodies, to be loving and empathetic in the internet age. Hope glimmers and shakes as Alli entwines tenderness and heartache, surfing dogs and estrogen pills. A debut collection that is instantly loveable; as eviscerating as it is gentle.

This remarkable debut collection pulls apart the threads of liminality and traces their paths across culture, family, and environment. Shah Idil’s experimental sense provides a transformative frame for an uncompromising lyricism, pushing outwards beyond the pages and prodding at the edges of memory and oblivion. Shah Idil’s work is magical and relentless, brimming with love.


Crocker complicates home and family in her debut book, Girls and Buoyant. With sensitivity and wry observation, Crocker explores old suburbs and new loves at the intersections of intimate moments and where late capitalism pokes at our lives. This striking debut poetry collection presents an unflinching examination of life outside the margins of the urbanised middle class.
