Saturday 2nd May, Veronica Lake & Dragonfly Wing! + open-mike VIA ZOOM

This Saturday 2nd May we will run a Zoom session to feature

        Veronica Lake reading from her wonderful book Dragonfly Wing,

        plus a Trashage of Garbage Bin poems from Veronica Lake, R Jackson, E Novello, EE Cummings, C Bukowski, J Updike, S Adams – a special treat

        plus open-mike.

We apologise we are not at the Moon Café but we will be via ZOOM. The Zoom session is on Saturday, 2nd May 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

Veronica Lake is a teacher of Literature, and has been since before the dawn of time.  In her spare 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 power and creativity inherent in language are very important to her and she tries hard to pass on and celebrate it with her students.

In 2010 she was awarded a Churchill Fellow for the study of Shakespeare and the way it is brought to new generations.  The fellowship allowed her to travel overseas and to work with the Royal Shakespeare Company, the Globe Theatre Company, Winchester College, Stratford Theatre Company in Canada and other theatre groups from England, Ireland and America.

Her poems have been published in Cordite, Westerly, Central Coast Poets, Regime, Creatrix, Cuttlefish, Poetry D’Amour and Poetica Christie Press.  In 2019 her first collection of poetry, Dragonfly Wing, was published by Sunline Press.  She lives by the sea in Fremantle, Western Australia and has need of it every day.

We will have regular open-mike on any theme;

plus our special treat – a Trashage of garbage/trash related poetry (a mini feature in the second half) – you’ll know why if you Zoom in.
