Welcome

At Plumwood Mountain we will continue to advocate for the recognition and protection of more-than-human worlds. These worlds include entangled ecosystems of animals, plants, and climates. We will deepen our commitment to foregrounding the links between decolonial and ecocritical perspectives by entering into dialogues with Australian and international First Nations poets in our forthcoming issues, as we turn to the human communities—both in Australia and around the world—that bear a larger share of the burden of environmental degradation.

Our sincere gratitude to Anne Elvey for 7 years and 14 exceptional issues of the journal, and for her continuing care and support. 

We would like to offer a special thank you to departing editorial board members: Bonny Cassidy, Freya Mathews, and Susan Hawthorne, for their generous advice during the transition period. 

Plumwood Mountain is delighted to announce that three environmentally passionate poets are joining the editorial board this year—Eunice Andrada, John Kinsella, and Craig Santos Perez.

Plumwood Mountain remains independent, and currently does not receive funding from state or federal funding bodies. While we aim for this to change in the near future, any donations will ensure poets, guest editors, and reviewers are paid for their work. 

Thank you for your continued support and readership. If you have any ideas or suggestions, we’d love to hear from you. 

Amanda Lucas-Frith & Sophie Finlay

Welcome

Plumwood Mountain is an online journal of ecopoetry and ecopoetics published in Australia.

We publish poetry that may broadly be understood as engaging with a more-than-human context, in a variety of poetic forms, articles on the poetics and intent of ecopoetry, exploring ways in which poetry not only responds to and affects its world, but also ways  in which poetic practice can model ecological systems and concerns, the ways in which poems themselves are material, breathy things in a world of animate matter, and reviews of collections of poetry that understand themselves or could be understood as ecopoetry.

The journal is named after Plumwood Mountain on unceded Yuin land.
