Mark Tredinnick

Through his poetry masterclasses, not least in these pandemic years, Mark Tredinnick has nurtured a rising generation of new Australian poets and poetry lovers. Now the focus returns to his own work. Walking Underwater is the first major collection of new Tredinnick poems since Bluewren Cantos (PSP 2013). Few Australian poets have received more recognition: the Cardiff and Montreal prizes and a long list of major Australian awards.

But these poems stand on their own elegant feet, independent of the track record and fame of their author. They touch, even caress, the physical world, a bush, a bird, the fleeting moment of beauty, the wounds of loss and forgiveness.
