Presented by no more poetry as part of Melbourne Art Book Fair

no more poetry is pleased to present the first published book of poems by artist and writer Bridie Lunney.

As a collection, Lunney’s book ​Sucking my Tongue to Keep the Salt of You Close​ is tender and commanding, a generous documentation of time and desire. It recounts the melding of two beings into each other and the self into everything. The book is bountiful with slow, intoxicating morning poems, poems of salt water and dense treacle, of late sun and new romance.

no more poetry was founded in mid-late 2020 as a platform dedicated to publishing the work of unpublished creatives regardless of age or career point, it strives diligently to find space to place unconventional practitioners within printed matter. no more poetry publishes one major publication bi-monthly (every two months), as well as a spattering of other published material throughout the year, including two magazines.
