Event description

Description

Tim is a former Northern Territory flying doctor and multi-award winning poet who has lived in the Bega Valley Shire for 25 years. The Underwritten Plain, his eighth book, is a sparse but sweeping epic of Australia, set at an abandoned bore-hole in South’s Australia’s Nullarbor plain. Starting from almost nothing, Tim Metcalf has grown a work that takes on the challenge to create the Great Australian Poem.

“Tim Metcalf’s quirkily clever book-length poem spans a vast Australian story with stylish empathy.” --Ian McFarlane
