countdown to QPF begins

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.

More soon!


USQ Bookcase this saturday!

This Saturday I’ll be returning to my home town Toowoomba to take part in the USQ Bookcase for a second year. This is a great little festival that showcases some of the University’s alumni as well as the best local writers from the region. I’ll be joined on the main stage from 3:30-4pm by Brett Dionysius and I’m really looking forward to performing with Brett again.

We’ll both have books for sale on the day, so if you are in the Toowoomba region, it would be great to see you there. Check out the program, as there are all manner of workshops and events and performances taking place over the weekend.

It’s great to be involved and give back to my home town and contribute to the cultural life of the region. It’s also a great lead up event to the Queensland Poetry Festival, happening next month. More on this event soon!
