Poets' 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.
Judy Johnson is an award-winning poet with a special interest in bringing to life little known but fascinating aspects of Australia's history. Prizes for her historical narratives include the Banjo Paterson Award, which she won three years in a row, and the Val Vallis Award. She has also been the recipient of three New Work Grants from the Literature Board of the Australia Council. Judy Johnson lives on the NSW Central Coast.
