John Kinsella comes to us from Western Australia, where he is the reigning king of poetry down under. Though still quite young, he is the author of nine volumes of poetry including Full Fathom Five and The Undertow: New & Selected Poems. His Collected Poems will be published next year, as will his "experimental novel," Genre. He has recently co-edited (with Joseph Parisi) a double issue of Australian poetry for the American journal Poetry. He is the editor of Salt magazine and Folio (Salt) publishing. He is at present a Young Australian Creative Fellow.
