My posts here have become a bit sporadic again – I blame the all consuming nature of renovating for this!
Some news to share: first that my application for the 2012 Queensland Poetry Festival has been accepted. This is very exciting as this will be the first time I will have appeared at QPF and I’m looking forward to preparing both for my own reading and for the showcase event.
The Queensland Poetry Festival is from 24-26 August at the Judith Wright Centre and brings together some of the best voices from across our great State and further afield and is definitely not an event to miss!
In this current political climate it is more important than ever to show your support for the arts and for all of our wonderful creatives such as poets, artists and writers.
Stay tuned for the final program announcement over the coming months.
Secondly, the launch of Feeding Paper Tigers is drawing close, with the event happening on Tuesday 24 April at Riverbend Books Bulimba. With ANZAC Day falling on the following day it is a great opportunity to head out on a Tuesday night for some words!
I’ll be joined by fellow launch poet Carmen Leigh Keates and a line up that is most impressive – featuring Brett Dionysius, Andy White and Tessa Leon. Truly something for everyone in this line up.
Head over to the Riverbend Books website now to book your tickets or just give them a call and make sure you don’t miss out. Tickets are selling fast!
A limited run of the books have been published and will be for sale at the event but you will have to try and make it to the event to guarantee you grab yourself a copy, as they won’t last long.
Hope to see plenty of you there on the night
