It’s National Poetry Week, so here’s a healthy hit of live poetry…
First up, here’s a link to listen to Poetica’s ‘National Poetry Week’ show, featuring the work of some of this country’s finest new voices – Michelle Dicinoski, Fiona Wright, Eileen Chong & Anthony Lynch; as well as the work of the late Rosemary Dobson and QLD stalwart, Bruce Dawe.
You can listen to the full show here.
Next, here’s a clip from QLD Poetry Festival 2012, featuring Pascalle Burton and Tylea. This piece closed Tylea’s set and the festival, so it’s a real pleasure to relive it again. [In other Tylea news, you can catch her at the Dowse Bar on Sunday Sept. 16]
While we are talking all things QLD Poetry Festival, here’s a link to the official photo roll of the event. Again, it’s wonderful to relive what was a poetically monumental weekend!
And last of all, here’s a clip of me reading my poem Beyond at the now sadly defunct, Back Room readings at Confit Bistro. As always Sheish Money is beside me doing what he does best…
