I
travel Country, like my Old People done. I see the Country, like my Old People

Morris, Ban Maganindadjyang (My Old People Done)

Guwayu, For All Times is a
collection of First Nations poems commissioned by Red Room Poetry over the past
16 years, and is a radical literary intervention for its breadth of
representation, temporal depth and diversity of language.

This fiercely uncensored
collection features 61 poems from First Nations poets in 12 First Nations
languages, and together they are an exquisite expression of living First
Nations culture.

Journey through a range of poetic forms from
lyric, confessional, protest, narrative and song, showcasing new voices and
established poets.

Guwayu is edited by Wiradjuri poet, Dr Jeanine Leane, produced by
Red Room Poetry, a leading arts organisation committed to making poetry in
meaningful ways, and published by Magabala Books, Australia's leading
Indigenous publisher.

'The
Australian literary landscape needs this bold, brave intervention to wake it up
from the 232-year slumber and the dream of the settler mythscape. Guwayu
breaks the silence - feel the beauty - hear our words.' - Dr Jeanine Leane
