Carolyn Fisher's The Unsuspecting Sky was the winner of the 2008 PressPress Chapbook Award.
There was a large and competitive field for this award and the competition was close. Fisher's poems are clear and present an accessible vision of the natural and social world around her. The poems in the chapbook have been written over a number of years when Fisher was a recipient of Australia Council and Arts Tasmania grants.
