Saturday 14th November, Jaya Penelope + open-mike! at the Moon and on Zoom

Poet and storyteller, Jaya Penelope has been a part of Perth’s poetry and performance community for twenty years. 

She has hosted poetry readings, performed at local and interstate festivals, self-published three zines and a cd (all vintage items now) and been published in various literary journals.

Jaya won the Poetry d’Amour Prize in 2014 and was recently longlisted for the Heroines Women’s Writing Award. Her spoken word collaboration with musician Gosia Winter, ‘you knocked out my walls”, was featured on Radio National’s Poetica.

She is currently collaborating with composer/songwriter Sophie Moleta, who is creating an album of songs from Jaya’s poetry (forthcoming)

Jaya runs Creative Writing Circles and storytelling nights from her home, and hosts poetry and mindfulness weekends at The Origins Retreat Centre in Balingup several times a year.
