Saturday 20th June, Jackson + open-mike! VIA ZOOM

This Saturday 20th June we have the wonderful poet Jackson + 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, 20th June 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Jackson was born in Cumbria, England.  She writes for both the ear and the eye. Her four full-length collections include A coat of ashes (Recent Work Press 2019) and The emptied bridge (Mulla Mulla Press 2019).

Her poems have appeared in many journals and anthologies, including the Fremantle Press Anthology of Western Australian Poetry.  Her essay Daoism and the poetry of Randolph Stow, Judith Wright and Ursula K Le Guin was featured in issue 7 of UK journal The High Window.  She founded both Perth Poetry Club and the online journal Uneven Floor.  In 2018 she completed her PhD in Writing.

During 2018 and 2019, Jackson taught English in China.  She is currently working as a sessional academic for Edith Cowan University, mainly online.  She is also a mentor for WA Poets Inc's Emerging Poets Program, and she offers a ridiculously cheap online poetry assessment service, Tactful Online Poetry Feedback.
