This is writing in response to music, from within the heart of music and in abandoned celebration of music.

The adventure continues. Music and literature combine with delicious results in this collection of uniquely Australian verse, short fiction and prose edited by Miriam Zolin. Featuring award-winning poets Mark Tredinnick and Geoff Page, 2011 National Jazz Writing Award winners Isabelle Skaburskis, Danny Melia and Ann-Marie Rudd, the collection celebrates words and the wordless with a journey that takes you from the Pilbara to St Kilda, Adelaide to Chicago; from Phillip Glass to Ravi Shankar; from risk to revelation.

This exciting new anthology of writing about about music features the winning pieces from the 2011 National jazz Writing Competition alongside works by award winning poets Mark Tredinnick (Fire Diary, The Blue Plateau, The Little Red Writing Book, Australia’s Wild Weather) and Geoff Page (A Sudden Sentence In The Air, Coda for Shirley), as well as other writers such as Virginia Lloyd (The Young Widow’s Book of Home Improvement), Donna Ward, Kent MacCarter (The Hungry Middle of Here, Ribosome Spreadsheet).
