Winner of the 2007 Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize Sarah Holland-Batt's Aria, winner of the 2007 Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize, is an impressive addition to this award-winning series. Like piano music heard through a high window, her language is haunting but entirely of this world. The poems are awake to the dark constellations of art and history, to what momentarily is, and to what flows endlessly on.
Former winners of the Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize include Jaya Savige, Nathan Shepherdson and Angela Gardner.
