My first encounter with an Australian poem, after arriving in Tasmania as an overseas immigrant teenager, was Gwen Harwood’s ‘Barn Owl’ (the devastating however stunning first part of ‘Father and Child’). Gwen Harwood, who would have turned 100 in 2020, remains Tasmania’s most recognised poet. It has been a pleasure to be able to run the Gwen Harwood Poetry Prize competitors in 2020/21, and we thank the Cultural Fund of the Copyright Agency and The Hobart Bookshop for sponsoring the prize. Enjoy the five fine poems in this issue, chosen by Island’s poetry editor Lisa Gorton, Lachlan Brown and Bella Li from greater than 300 submitted for judging.
