Saturday 9th May, Tim Parkin and Caroline Reid (SA) + open-mike VIA ZOOM

This Saturday 9th May we have two wonderful poets Tim Parkin and Caroline Reid (SA) + open-mike VIA ZOOM.

We apologise we are not at the Moon Café but we will be via ZOOM.

The Zoom session is on Saturday, 9th May 2:00pm to 4:00pm.

Tim Parkin is a hairy, chubby mammal who loves poetry but is never going to appear in Cordite or Westerly. He really doesn't give a proverbial about this. For him poetry is catharsis for myriad mental health issues and he also writes for the sheer joy of it.

He has been published in various local zines and is shit scared of the coming apocalypse.

Caroline Reid is an award-winning writer, performer and arts support worker who lives and works on Kuarna land (Adelaide, Australia). Caroline writes poetry, fiction, the occasional essay and plays. She has won multiple slam comps and twice represented South Australia in the Australian Poetry Slam at the Sydney Opera House.

Her play PRAYER TO AN IRON GOD is published by Currency Press.

SIARAD, her debut collection of poetry and prose is Published by ES-Press, an imprint of SPINELESS WONDERS

You will have to wait for Zoom to do its thing. Be patient.
