Saturday 10th August, Young Poets Showcase!

This Saturday 10th August we have Young Poets Showcase (from Primo Lux) and open-mike at Perth Poetry Club, mc-ed by Veronica Lake.

Young Poets who graced the pages of Primo Lux will read their poetry at the Moon.

Primo Lux is an annual student poetry anthology featuring work from young poets in Years 10 to 12 across Western Australia. Its editor, and driving force, is Veronica Lake.

Veronica Lake is a teacher of Literature, and has been since before the dawn of time. She edits the annual student poetry journal Primo Lux, which draws from students in high schools all over the state, and celebrates their distinctive voices and stories. The journal has been in production now for 15+ years.

In 2010 Veronica was awarded a Churchill Fellow for the study of Shakespeare and the way it is brought to new generations. She is a noted poet in her own right, and part of the Voicebox collective.

All the above with usual open mike as well.

Join us this Saturday afternoon 2pm - 4pm at the Moon Café, 323 William Street Northbridge to celebrate with Primo Lux Young Poets and Veronica Lake + open-mike at Perth Poetry Club.
