Here comes J. Tranter

The intriguing interview site, Here Comes Everybody, is currently featuring Australian poet John Tranter. Find out fascinating things such as: John uses an old silver fountain pen (I notice these things as I have a number of fountain pens, including a great old Parker 51 with a gold cap) and he's half-Scots (so, I'm a quarter Scots thanks my Edinburgh-born granny). But, no, I didn't grow up on a farm though John did and he talks about how that was important to him.

There are other Australian poets in the 'future' line-up for Here Comes Everybody. Not yours truly but others nearly as fascinating (joke, Joyce).
