‘The luminous poetry in this online special issue of Westerly constellates in skyward storytelling about the stars and our desire to expand ourselves from Earth to universe, from the known to the unknowable.’
Guest Editor Elfie Shiosaki, 2023

This issue showcases a collaboration of five poets under the curation of Elfie Shiosaki as guest editor. The issue was co-designed with the Perth Festival, which in 2023 worked with the Noongar community to celebrate the theme djinda, including in seeking cultural permissions for engaging with the theme and the use of Noongar language.
