Background Organisation
Cordite Poetry Review is Australia’s leading journal of poetics, “one of the major arteries of our poetic discourse, as confident and sophisticated a poetry forum as Australia has had” (Jaya Savige, The Australian). Published four to six times a year (with various special issues in addition), Cordite is dedicated to presenting new and established Australian poets to the world, as well as publishing a wide range of international work, including poetry in translation. The online format of the journal also provides opportunities for the presentation of multimedia (visual and audio) contributions. The journal features refereed academic articles in the field, related critical essays on issues of contemporary poetics, and provides the broadest national forum for reviews of current poetry titles. Cordite also publishes a series of poetry collections in print form.

This 6-credit point subject for third-year students will involve around 144 hours of duties, divided between on-campus (Monash Clayton) and online activities, from November to March. The intern will receive mentorship in all aspects of the journal’s production, as well as gaining a unique insight into the state of current practice in contemporary Australian poetry.
