Wave after Wave

Exploring forms of belonging, identity and what it means to be connected to the Indian Ocean.



Wave after Wave is a collection of poetry and short stories developed by ten emerging writers of Indian Ocean heritage beyond the west coast of Australia. Wave after Wave explores forms of belonging, place, and the identities of our contributors.

To think of the Indian Ocean is to think of a space between ports and towns, a region that has its own tides and times, one of connections and possibilities and people that have mattered for as long as we know. Wave after Wave searches for ways of making sense with our own rhythms and logics and music and winds and family resemblances.
