101 Poems … a poet's life

Anthony Lawrence In Conversation with Melinda Smith

Multi award winning poet, Anthony Lawrence won last year's Prime Minister's prize for Poetry for his latest publication Headwaters. What is a poet's life? Lawrence spent his early years as a jackaroo, a landscape gardener, a fisherman and a truck driver. He then trained as a primary and secondary school teacher. An Australia Council grant, while working on a fishing trawler, gave him the opportunity to give more time to writing. Lawrence discusses his life and his writing and much more with Melissa Smith, the 2014 recipient of the Prime Minister’s Literary Award for Poetry.
