Meet the 2011 Arts QLD Poet-in-Residence, Jacob Polley

Jacob Polley is well and truly set up at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts and his residence is already building momentum. His workshop series starts tomorrow night at QLD Writers Centre and he is heading up to Rockhampton for workshops and readings later this week. Here’s a link to an interview he did with ABC Radio’s Kelly Higgins-Devine just after he arrived on our shores.

And remember, if you want to experience Jacob’s transcendental style live, make sure you book yourself a ticket to QLD Poetry Festival’s, opening night event, Of Rhythm and Rapture on Friday August 26. It’s a stellar line up featuring, Jacob Polley (UK), Sawako Nakayasu (Japan), Australian Poetry’s Poet-in-Residence, Sandra Thibodeaux and acclaimed singer-songwriter, Kate Fagan. Tickets are available here, so book early and don’t miss out.

  1. I’m fairly new to his work, but I just featured Jacob Polley in my poem of the day series. He’s a wonderful, wonderful poet.

  2. I’ve got a gig with this spunk?! All right! Only kidding – that poem of his on ‘theoncominghope’ blog is just gorgeous. Can’t wait to hear more of his work … backstage … in an intimate moment … Ooh-wah – I’m gonna get dumped for this. I’ll be replaced by Sr Janet Mead. Whatever happened to her, hey?
