Saturday 12th January, Phillip Hall!

This Saturday 12th January 2019 we have the wonderful poet Phillip Hall, and open-mike, to kick-start 2019.

Phillip Hall is a poet and essayist.

In short…

Phillip Hall worked for many years as a teacher of outdoor education and sport throughout regional New South Wales, Northern Queensland and the Northern Territory.  He now resides in Melbourne’s Sunshine where he is a passionate member of the Western Bulldogs Football Club.  His publications include Sweetened in Coals, Borroloola Class, and (as editor) Diwurruwurru: Poetry from the Gulf of Carpentaria.

In the long…

Phillip Hall’s publications include Sweetened in Coals (Ginninderra Press), Borroloola Class (International Poetry Studies Institute, Canberra University) and (as editor) Diwurruwurru: Poetry from the Gulf of Carpentaria (Blank Rune Press).  His poetry, reviews and essays have appeared regularly in such places as Best Australian Poems, Cordite Poetry Review, Plumwood Mountain, Southerly, Verity La, Westerly.  His soon to be launched Fume, from UWAP, has the following accolades:

Phillip Hall writes from the edge: the edge of language; the edge of mental illness; and, from the perspective of a non-Indigenous poet and teacher standing at the edge of Indigenous culture and community carrying generosity and love alongside the ongoing trauma of dispossession…”  (UWAP)

Phillip Hall is family to Blackfullas … a champion who writes like truth … he sees Country like me, like a lot of Blackfullas – seeing the minute, and seeing the inferences.”  (PAUL COLLIS)
