Your mid-week live poetry fix

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…

  1. very cool…loved seeing you performing the piece..

  2. I always feel inspired to try something new when I see what you all are doing down under. πŸ™‚ Enjoyed your reading much Graham.

  3. am indeed sad to hear that Confit will no longer be a part of the burgeoning poetry scene in this mixed-up, shook-up, funny ol’ world. Ray Davies would no doubt shake a sad head & offer a small & somewhat twisted smile…

    still, commercial imperatives rule, no? and after all, it’s only human culture that suffers… as long as the cash registers keep ringing… oh christ, there’s a wealth of Phd theses in this…
