Saturday 10th September, Lindsay Shelton, Ange + open-mike, at the Moon, on Zoom!

Perth Poetry Club this Saturday 10th September 2pm-4pm has wonderful poets Lindsay Shelton + Ange + open-mike, via ZOOM and at THE MOON CAFÉ.

Lindsay Shelton is a passionate taxonomic botanist afflicted by ADD, anxiety, horniness and heartbreak.  Perth Poetry helped him put his life back together after a turbulent year of over prescribed medication.  He is most passionate about nature, plants and the bush, but struggles to put these passions to pen.  His poems are a bit short, but he hopes you enjoy them nonetheless!

Ange was born in North London and came to Perth in 81.  She has been a cartoonist for the Fremantle Herald for 31 years.  Ange also does educational illustrations.  She feels most at home working in the cartoon format.  Ange had one poem published in the Freo Arts Centre magazine back in the day.  Her poems in this feature are mostly 20 years old, with a few poems from the ‘90s.

Ange has happily sat through thousands of poems read at the Moon, all the while imagining that someday she read her own work.  Ange has since realized that day will never come so she has asked Christine Della Vedova to read them… Teachers are very good at reading out loud….Ta very much Christine.

Please join us to celebrate poetry this Saturday afternoon 2pm - 4pm.

The venue is The Moon Café, 323 William St, Northbridge and on ZOOM.
