Poet's Corner is WestWords' monthly encounter with celebrated Australian poets, curated by David Ades.
Each month a poet is invited to read and talk about their poetry on a theme of the poet's choice.
Andy Jackson's first published book of poems, Among the Regulars, was shortlisted for the 2011 Kenneth Slessor Prize for Poetry, and his most recent collection, Music Our Bodies Can't Hold, which consists of portrait poems of other people with Marfan Syndrome, was shortlisted for the 2020 John Bray Poetry Award. He has co-edited disability-themed issues of the literary journals Southerly and Australian Poetry Journal, and he has been a creative writing teacher and tutor for community organisations and universities.
