Saturday 6th April, Andrew Burke!

This Saturday 6th April we have the wonderful poet Andrew Burke and open-mike at Perth Poetry Club.  Andrew was our first feature back in 2009.

Andrew Burke was born in Victoria in 1944, then moved to WA as a toddler.  He was educated there, then hitchhiked (in the ‘60s) to further his education at factories, etc, in Melbourne and Sydney.  After work at radio stations in Perth, he went on to be a Creative Director in advertising agencies, all the time writing stories, plays and poems.  In middle-age he went into academia, studying and lecturing in writing and literature.  

Andrew has published thirteen poetry collections, one novel and a smattering of short stories, book reviews and literary criticism.  After five years living in the Riverina area of New South Wales, he returned to Perth in 2017. For more details on Andrew go to
