feature spot at whispers

I have been invited to participate as the feature poet at the State Library of Queensland’s excellent monthly literary event ‘Whispers’.

I will be lining up alongside four other writers on Saturday July 13 to share stories around the theme of ‘On the road’.

Here’s the official blurb about the event:

Stories speak to us; they whisper, cajole, and, on occasion, shout out to be heard.

Join critically acclaimed author, Patrick Holland (Riding the Trains in Japan: Travels in the Sacred and Supermodern East, The Darkest Little Room, The Source of the Sound), alongside author Mary-Lou Stephens (Sex, Drugs & Meditation), Felix Calvino (A Hatful of Cherries), poet Vanessa Page and short fiction writer, Megan McGrath, as they share their stories of being on the road.

Relax in The Library Café, and connect with passionate readers and writers as we celebrate the unique stories and voices that define Queensland.

Whispers is a monthly salon event celebrating the talented voices of new and emerging Queensland writers of fiction and creative non-fiction.

Whispers – bringing words to life.

With many of my poems inspired by my travels – especially through outback Queensland, I think the hardest thing will be choosing the poems to read!

Located at the SLQ cafe, the event kicks off at 3pm. Copies of my book ‘Confessional Box’ will be available for sale at the SLQ bookshop on the day.

    Hope it’s a great reading Vanessa. I’ve woken up without any voice, so am resting up. Take care and hope to see you at Speeds in July.

    No worries Graham – I am REALLY hoping to make it to the July Speeds, seeing as I missed last month. Hope you are back in fine voice by then 🙂
