Australian poet Robbie Coburn was born in June 1994 in Melbourne and grew up on his family’s farm in the semi-rural locality of Woodstock, Victoria.
His work has appeared in many national and overseas publications such as Poetry, The Canberra Times, Overland, Westerly, Cordite and Going Down Swinging and some of his poems have been anthologised.
His first poetry collection Rain Season was published by Picaro Press in 2013. A second collection, The Other Flesh, is forthcoming.
Robert Adamson has noted that Coburn’s poems “are created with a muscular craft that glows with alert intelligence” and that they “create an inner life that draws in the reader” which “shimmers with light as much as it burns with ferocity.”
He currently resides in Melbourne.
“Stay tuned! Nothing prepares you for the shock of a new voice in poetry, and nothing quenches that thirst better than a good dose of poetry. A poetry of place and sensibility can light up a whole landscape, and the poetry of Robbie Coburn does just that. In these poems we see him now in the very act of etching out the details, so hold on, and read on through.”
