703: Felicity Plunkett: Seastrands

This book of poems has come out in 100 copies as part of the Rare Object Series by Vagabond Press. Vagabond Press started with the Rare Object Series in July 1999, publishing two small chapbooks of poetry by David Brooks and Nick Riemer and ran until 2014 with the last chapbook presenting work by the great J.S. Harry. The series remains iconic in Australian poetry publishing, bringing together key emerging and established Australian poets at the turn of the twenty-first century, and being remarkable for the quality of the work published and the design and production values. “Seastrands” by Felicity Plunkett is Rare Object Nr. 62 and came out in 2011. Felicity Plunkett is an Australian poet, literary critic, editor and academic. She is a writer of poetry, essays, and short stories, and a widely published critic. She has a PhD from the University of Sydney and began her career as a university academic. She was a poetry editor at the University of Queensland Press from 2010 to 2018.
