Barry Hill

Barry Hill’s long narrative poem, Ghosting William Buckley won the 1994 NSW Premier’s Award for Poetry, and his labour history, Sitting-In won the same award for Non-Fiction in 1992. Although he lives by the sea in Queenscliff, Victoria, his recent work, including The Inland Sea, his third book of poetry, arises out of travelling and research in Central Australia. He teaches occasionally at the University of Melbourne and is poetry editor for the national newspaper, The Australian.
