Our two features this week 21st January 2017 at Perth Poetry Club are Joanna Wakefield and Istenad Haddad.
Joanna Wakefield shares her time between Perth and the UK, where she has read her work at several poetry slams and events, including Perth Poetry Club in 2014. She started writing poetry at the venerable age of 13. In 2013 one of her short poems was displayed at UWA and in 2014 her poem “The Lift” was selected to be shown on the big screen outside PICA. Her poetry is about place, experience, sensitivity and capturing the moment.
