One of Australia’s oldest and strangest literary publishers, Going Down Swinging was conceived in 1979. It now produces print anthologies, audio recordings, multimedia publications, live events and a very busy website.

We’re happy to be able to team up with Going Down Swinging and introduce Australian writers to our PRISMers–and vice versa. We’ll be swapping articles and interviews once a month, so keep an eye out!

This month we have something for your ears: Jessica Alice performing her poem “I’ve Been Wondering ABout How Dinosaurs Had Sex”. Dinosaurs AND poetry are an excellent combination.

Jessica is co-director of the National Young Writers Festival in Newcastle. She’s poetry editor for Scum and has previously edited for Voiceworks, Kill Your Darlings and The Lifted Brow. Talk to her here, and listen to more of her poetry on Going Down Swinging‘s Soundcloud.
