Pitt Street Poetry is a Sydney-based poetry imprint, publishing contemporary Australian poetry.

Poet, Jakob Ziguras

Poet, Jakob Ziguras

On Arts Thursday in recent months, Maisy Stapleton has interviewed two of the poets  published by this innovative venture.

Eileen Chong’s Burning Rice shares her memories of Singapore, her fascination with women from China’s history and her experiences and self reflections.


In his first book of poetry, Chains of Snow, Jakob Ziguras speaks of his travels
and places embedded in his memory, redolent with both personal association and connections to history and myth.
