Expressions of Interest open for QLD Poetry Festival 2012

Australia’s premiere celebration of all things poetic, Queensland Poetry Festival, invites proposals from poets, performers and artists interested in being part of the 16th annual festival.

QPF is not a director-led festival; rather it is programmed each year by a group of Brisbane poets through an open Expression of Interest process. In that spirit, QPF is inviting Expressions of Interest from poets, musicians, performers, and spoken word artists interested in being a part of the 16th annual three-day festival, spoken in one strange word 2012. Be it a reading, a project, a performance, or perhaps something that embraces myriad art forms, bring it on! They are open to all forms of poetic expression and want to know what you’ve been cooking.

If you are programmed to perform at QPF 2012, flights, accommodation and performance fees will be provided.

Submission deadline: Wednesday 22nd February, 2012.

QPF 2012 runs from 24 – 26 August at the state-of-the-art, Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane.

For further details, submission forms and guidelines, visit the QPF website at, or contact them at with any questions.
