He was a founding editor of Cordite and coedited the anthologies Calyx: 30 Contemporary Australian Poets and the Macquarie PEN Anthology of Aboriginal Literature. He has curated numerous poetry events, art exhibitions and academic seminars, has been the poetry editor for leading Australian journals Meanjin and Overland, and is a senior lecturer in English at the University of Sydney, where he teaches across contemporary literature, creative writing and Indigenous studies.
