Literary City Guide | Canberra, Australia

And I wanted to write about Canberra, this city that lures ambitious people from all across Australia, a city that remakes families, a city of clamorous debates and deserted streets, a city of words, permeated with an immense silence.
— James Button

I was very honored that Fathom recently named Eat This Poem one of the best travel blogs of 2015, in large part because of our robust list of destinations on Literary City Guides. It's been very exciting to see how this resource has grown from three cities to nearly 60, and today, another international destination joins the group.

South of Sydney, Canberra is Australia's capital city, and aside from having political clout, offers plenty for the literary traveler to enjoy. Shu-Ling Chua is originally from Melbourne but has called Canberra home for the past two years. You can often find her attending local arts festivals, drinking tea in local cafes, or browsing the handwritten manuscripts on display at the National Library of Australia.
