I travel Country, like my Old People done. I see the Country, like my Old People done I burn Country, like my Old People done. I sing Country, like my Old People done — Jacob 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.

Featuring: Ethan Bell, John Muk Muk Burke, Ali Cobby Eckermann, Claire G Coleman, Paul Collis, Joel Davison, Joel Deaves, Lionel Fogarty, Declan Furber Gillick, Stiff Gins, Daniel Hansen, Matthew Heffernan, Steve Dibirdi Hodder Wass Bunbajee, Yvette Holt, Gayle Kennedy, Jeanine Leane, Carissa Lee Godwin, Lola McKickett, Jacob Morris, Lorna Munro, Melanie Mununggurr, Maureen O’Keefe, Bruce Pascoe, Nick Paton, Ryan Prehn, Celestine Rowe, Brenda Saunders, Nicole Smede, Lyndsay Urquhart, Sam Wagan Watson, Adrain Webster.

'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
