The sharing spirit of National Poetry Week has continued…
The delightful Gabrielle Bryden has featured my poem, Empty Creel on her site today and my poem, Bali Sunrise, is currently featured on the SPUNC site as part of their Spring 2011 Poetry Feature alongside Robert Adamson, Paul Hardacre, Michael Farrell, Anna Kerdijk-Nicholson and Luke Beesley. Now that is fine company!
If you are anywhere near Brisbane next Wednesday night, The Back Room at Confit Bistro is keeping the QLD Poetry Festival love flowing with a showcase of artists from the 2011 program.
The night will feature Sheish Money, Jane Sheehy and Nick Powell premiering work from their new show, Shift; Jeremy Thompson, who’s poem, First City Christmas at Grandmas was shortlisted in the recent, 2010 Overland Judith Wright Poetry Prize; and readings from three members of the QPF Committee, Jonathan Hadwen, Lee-Anne Davie and Zenobia Frost. Each will read a selection of their own poems as well as a poem from one of the international/interstate artists on the QPF Program.
Confit Bistro is located at 4/9 Doggett St, Fortitude Valley and has a sensational tapas style menu and wine list. Entry is free!
