This Saturday 3rd November 2018 we have two wonderful poets, Jakob Boyd + Darcie Morris + Jakob’s book City Without Stories at Perth Poetry Club.
Laundry Man aka Jakob Boyd is a performance poet, visual artist, indi-publisher and gigmaker. Raised by anarchists in Perth’s radical art scene, Laundry Man has appeared at events, shows and festivals in Perth and around Australia including at NYWF, High Tide Fremantle, Southbound, FRINGE WORLD 2018, Perth Poetry Festival, Crack X, HaXa House and in the band ‘Blow Jobs & Growth'. He’s organised and co-run a myriad of diy events and projects currently including Dirtymouth Music and Poetry, Perth Slam, Hectic Measures Press and a variety of illegal music parties. Jakob has been published in Cordite 52, Street Light Press 12, OUTinPerth and by Mulla Mulla Press.
City Without Stories is Jakob’s first full length poetry collection. Out through Indifference Publications, City Without Stories collects five years of playful, dark and energetic verse in a semi-autobiographical odyssey through fast food kitchens, nihilistic suburbs, modern romance and the depths of Perth’s counter-culture; a punk-poets call to action to build our own culture from the ground up.
Darcie Morris is a Perth-based poet and fiction writer. She studied Writing and Children's Literature at ECU before taking to open-mic stages and learning to perform spoken word poetry. Darcie loves to write poems about people she encounters and their infinite capacity to be strange and wonderful. Darcie has an ebook zine, "Six Buttons and Other Poems of Everyday Life", freely available. Also her Facebook page: @darciejmorris has poems to share some love of poetry.
