"Alison Croggon is one of the most powerful lyric poets writing today." – Australian Book Review
Raw, passionate and dazzling, Alison Croggon's poetry confronts a world fractured by different kinds of violence – patriarchal, colonial, sexual and emotional – and finds there a difficult beauty. New and Selected Poems 1991-2017 brings together works from all nine of her published collections, new poems written since 2008 and previously unpublished work. It demonstrates the full range of her poetry: formally inventive, intellectually curious and stylistically assured.
Cutting Room both describes and pushes against the anxious hum of the technologically saturated present. Sarah Pinder's poems navigate domestic and 'natural' spaces as landscapes charged with possible violence and desire. Using hyper-focus and the long gaze, they draw the eye to the corners and seams of these spaces, slowing us down, shifting our focus to worn detail, asking us to seek pattern and possibility in a hyper-paced present tense. Theseare little ominous films, documenting the minutiae around us that can be our undoing.

A Journey of Healing is both a story of survival over childhood sexual abuse and a journey of healing dedicated to those who are fighting with their own recovery process. Divided into two parts, with the first telling Catherines heart-wrenching story of being sexually abused from nine years of age and the harrowing effects it would have on her life and the decisions she made. The distress continued with the loss of two babies, a crumbling marriage, and the subsequent battle with depression and suicidal thoughts. This is a profound and touching account into the deepest emotions she held silent within her soul for over thirty years. This is her story of recovery.
Part two is dedicated to fellow survivors of any form of trauma and offers the reader motivational insight, affirmations, verse and proactive healing solutions. These solutions Catherine gained through her journey of healing and are many and varied. These are recovery techniques she discovered through research, psychotherapy, or personal experience.
Fallen Rose is about myself, the author. It contains some unfortunate true stories of my life from childhood to late teen years. It is about a child sexual abuse, a child murder, emotional abuse, and drug and alcohol addictions. At least two are about people I admired who helped through those troubling times.
Fallen Rose II will follow at a later date and time. I had written and rewritten Fallen Rose several times. Thirty-one to be exact. It is time for my story to be told.
