The USQ Bookcase last weekend was a terrific lead-up to this year’s Queensland Poetry Festival. I am so excited this year to be programmed to perform at QPF, so having the opportunity to test out 15 minutes of new material on an appreciative Toowoomba audience was great.
This year, I will be performing alongside two other giants of Australian poetry in David Brooks and Michael Farrell in our session ‘Better the devil you know’. I do hope you can come along to catch the performance, which will be held on Sunday 30th August in the Shopfront, 1:30-2:30pm. There are a whole heap of awesome things planned for this year’s festival, which runs from 28-30 August at the mighty Judith Wright Centre in the Valley, so I urge you to check out the program in its entirety at the QPF website.
From Ali Cobby Eckermann, MTC Cronin and Ivy Alvarez to Sarah Holland-Batt, Les Murray and even Clive Palmer MP – there is sure to be something for everyone. And if performance and experimental poetry is more your flavour, I think this year’s program will really ignite your senses.
