Melinda Smith (ACT)
Dean Meredith (WA)
Shey Marque (WA)
Ann Gilchrist (WA)

There will be limited open-mike (2-minutes maximum). No preamble please in order to maximise the poetry. It would help if you properly time your open-mike poem prior to the gig. We hope to have 15 or more open-mike slots if everyone co-operates. Also, first preference given to those that missed out on open-mike last year.
A great place to be this Saturday afternoon 2pm-4pm at The Moon Cafe, 323 William Street Northbridge.
