Spoken Word - Eleanor Jackson

Thursday, 8 August 2019 - 9:00am to 9:30am

Eleanor Jackson is our guest this week, talking about the nuance and politics of gender, emotional nostalgia, the power of quiet, and the grief of new motherhood. She shares poems about her father, "the second man [she] wanted to be", and discusses stoicism and silence, and the notion of poetry as a secular prayer. She also talks about "racial reconciliation" in Australia, national truth-telling, and her work on Peril Magazine
