It has been another massive year, but I am not quite ready to put the feet up (keep your eyes on this site for the announcement of an important fundraising project later this week).
So before the Christmas rush hits, I would love you all to come out and support my final reading of the year. I don’t do many feature readings in Brisbane these days, and I am really excited about this one, as I am sharing the bill with two exciting artists; Angela Gardner who is one of the founders of the unique, light-trap press and one of my favourite Australian poets, Laurie Duggan, who will launch his book, Leaving Here… on the night, in what is an all too rare opportunity to hear him read on home soil.
Here’s the details:
Join Light-Trap Press and Queensland Poetry Festival to celebrate the launch of Laurie Duggan’s latest collection Leaving Here…
…a suite of poems about being here and finding one’s feet elsewhere,
with an original lino-print cover by Angela Gardner. This beautifully
produced limited edition of only 100 signed and numbered copies is
the third in the light-trap press poetry-in-print series.
Laurie will take to the mic to read from the collection, joined on the evening by local poets Graham Nunn and Angela Gardner. Along with fine poetry and a glass of wine, Light-Trap Press will be giving away a lucky door prize on the night – a unique hand-printed letterpress broadsheet ‘Swung Weight’.
When: Thursday 29th November
Time: 6pm start
Where: Queensland Writers Centre, Level 2, State Library of Queensland, Cultural Centre, Stanley Place, South Brisbane

I hope you can make it out to what will be an incredible event!
