Republics of Letters: Literary Communities in Australia, edited by Peter Kirkpatrick and Robert Dixon, looks at the role of institutions and intermediaries in the process of literary creation. James Ley reviews the book in The Australian, 19 January 2013.

Ley notes, “How does one measure such intangible factors as influence, the importance of social support networks in creating new work, or the extent to which the solitary act of reading can be said to connect a person to the wider culture?”.
