Internationally-renowned two-voice poet and performance artist, Emily XYZ has been selected as the 2010 Poet-in-Residence.
Hailing from New York, the provocateur commences her residency on 1 July and will embark on a three-month program involving regional tours, one-on-one workshops with Queensland poets and writers, and will culminate in appearances with her performance partner Myers Bartlett at the 14th Queensland Poetry Festival.

If you have never witnessed the magic of Emily XYZ & Myers Bartlett, here’s a couple of clips you should most definitely check out on Youtube.
Emily and Myers blew minds when they were last here in 2006 and I am sure that this residency is going to see some amazing art created.
