and know the place for the first time." (T S Eliot)

The Fellowship of Australian Writers recently held its annual presentation of National Literary Awards at its Melbourne headquarters.

David Morisset's poem, "Persian Princess", was 'Commended' in the John Shaw Neilson Poetry Award (sponsored by Melbourne's Collective Works Bookshop).

The poem was based on a pivotal passage in David Morisset's novel set in Iran at the time of the Islamic Revolution.
