Melbourne Journal

Notebooks: 1998-2003

By Alan Loney

'Is it possible, that this place, not 'the land of my birth' is where I might truly come to be 'at home'?' Melbourne Journal: Notebooks 1998-2003 is the third instalment in Alan Loney's notebooks, covering the period in between his previous publications (Sidetracks: Notebooks 1976-1991 and Crankhandle: Notebooks June 2010-November 2013). This is one of first four poetry titles included in the new imprint from UWA Publishing, UWAP Poetry. This is the third installment in Alan Loney's notebooks, covering the period in between his previous publications. Allowing observations and ideas to fall on to the page half-formed, poems to shimmer into and out of existence like apparitions, Alan Loney's words celebrates the reflexive muscle of the poet's mind, heightened by the stimuli of a new place: Melbourne. He is an established poet based in Melbourne, Victoria. His previous notebook compilation, Crankhandle, won the 2016 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Poetry.
