This Saturday 6th November we have Manveen Kohli + Sarah St Vincent Welch (ACT) + open-mike at the Moon and on Zoom.
Manveen Kohli BIO:
I am a 27 year-old aspiring poet from the UK. I have a background in Educational Psychology, and have recently completed a Master of Teaching at The University of Western Australia. My writing journey began at a very young age; however, my poetry journey began five years ago. I started performing my poetry at events such as Spoken Word Perth. It was one of the most electrifying experiences of my life. I am a 2x state finalist in WA’s annual poetry slam competition. Furthermore, I am currently working on my manuscript and plan to self-publish a poetry book in the future. I hope to empower and heal as many people as possible through my words.
Sarah St Vincent Welch is a texteditwrangler and poet from Canberra. She is travelling in Australia for three months on a writing journey about mental health. She is one of the organisers of ‘That Poetry Thing That Is On At Smiths Every Monday’ (which has been zooming during the lockdowns). She is also the founder of the ‘Kindred Trees’ project, which encourages love of trees through poetry. It asks Canberra poets to write in response to a local tree. It is a project being developed over the next ten years, and the poetry can be read online with photos of the trees and the poets at kindredtrees.com.au. She is also known for chalking her poems on the footpaths at arts festivals. Her chapbook ‘OPEN’ was published by Rochford Press in 2019. ‘chalk borders’ is being published in December 2021 by Flying Islands Press as part of their Pocketbook series.
“I grew up in the Sydney suburb called Northbridge so I have always wanted to visit Perth's Northbridge, and now I will!”
