Plumwood Mountain: an Australian Journal of Ecopoetry and Ecopoetics will dedicate volume 2, issue 2 (September 2015) to the memory of Martin Harrison (1949-2014). A key member of Plumwood Mountain’s inaugural editorial board, and acclaimed poet, critic and teacher, Martin’s impact upon contemporary Australian poetry and poetics will be as long-lasting as it was profound.

This special issue will be guest edited by Martin’s colleagues and co-board members of Plumwood Mountain Peter Minter and Stuart Cooke. The editors are seeking submissions from Martin’s friends, colleagues, collaborators and readers, in works across any genre or media, that engage substantially with Martin’s poetry, criticism, thought and teaching, which reflect upon his life and legacy and which contribute to the sustenance of his memory.

Submissions close: 30 April 2015

For submission guidelines go to the Submissions page.

Submissions should be sent to
