‘redactor’ shortlisted in VPLA, recommended in The Guardian


It’s been a big couple of days for Eddie Paterson and redactor, published by Whitmore Press in February 2017.

Yesterday, after a reading of ‘redactor’, Eddie was named by Marieke Hardy in The Guardian as one of eight new writers we should be reading. Hardy writes, ‘when a writer such as Eddie Paterson falls across one’s radar the thrilling potential can’t be ignored. His latest collection, redactor, uses found texts from ordinary daily life to make word-magic on the page’. https://www.theguardian.com/…/eight-new-australian-writers-…

Today, ‘redactor’ has been shortlisted, along with works by Bella Li and Jennifer Maiden, in the Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards. The judges describe redactor as a ‘hilarious, politically alive vivid experiment. It’s a hand-held guide to finding the twisted wonderful poetry in every banal word we employ. https://www.wheelercentre.com/…/victorian-premier-s-literar…
