Brisbane turned on all of its charms for festival weekend, commencing with a glorious day on Friday 24 for the workshop ‘The Art of Reading a Poem’ with the wonderful Robert Adamson.
I was lucky enough to secure the last spot in this workshop, definitely my good fortune as the three hour workshop was absolutely engaging! The three hour workshop simply flew and I think we all could have sat there for much longer listening to Robert read through his favourite poems and build context around them through stories, anecdotes and his extensive knowledge of all things poetry. What a great opportunity and experience!
Over the festival weekend I made it a priority to catch each of his solo readings and I feel extremely fortunate to have had the privilege of watching Robert in action on stage and striking up a friendship with him in conversation as the weekend progressed.
