Another Lost Shark Swims North…

I have a couple of trips north over the next two weekends.

This weekend I will join four local Bribie Island poets – Peter Maxwell, Di Turner, Ruth Ingliss and Lynne Hooper  – for a reading at The Bribie Island Seaside Museum (1 South Esplanade, Bongaree, Bribie Island). Readings will start at 11am, followed by drinks on the deck. It is an amazing little spot, so if you like your poetry by the sea, this one is for you!

Date: Saturday September 10
Time: 11am – 1pm
Place: Bribie Island Seaside Museum, 1 South Esplanade, Bongaree
Entry: Free

Then the following weekend, I head further north to Hervey Bay to run a poetry workshop at the Urangan Community Centre from 10am – 2pm. The workshop will address a variety of techniques to help you write, fine tune and deliver a poem that really sings. The workshop is priced at $15/$10 so to book your place, email Lynn Harris at harlynn@iprimus.com.au or call (07) 4124 5531.

Then, later that night (6:15pm for a 7pm start), Sheish Money & I will host Hervey Bay’s first ever Slam, kicking off the night with a feature set before 20 poets let their poems do the talking on stage. Entry is $15/$10 and includes  a night of wild words, nibbles, a glass of wine and a post Slam supper.

Will be good to dive into some new waters!

But first, tonight I have the immense pleasure of seeing Simone Felice as part of Brisbane Writers Festival. Very excited!

  1. I absolutely loved Hervey Bay–what a relaxing and beautiful spot. Glad you’re bring the Slam to them–I bet even the whales that are hanging out there will approve. Hope it’s a terrific trip.

  2. Hervey Bay will love you Graham!

    Hervey Bay certainly did love Graham and as an organiser I can’t wait to bring him back. The workshop was brilliant and the Slam went extremely well. I know I can speak on behalf of the poets in my group and say thank you, thank you, thank you.
