This Saturday 29th October we have fabulous poet Ben Riddle and open-mike at Perth Poetry Club, VIA ZOOM and at The Moon Café.
Indie darling Ben Riddle has been writing and publishing poetry for some ten years now, and performing words on stage for eight. Having graduated with a BA from the University of Western Australia, and completed postgraduate studies at Deakin University, Ben Riddle wrote and toured his original show "The Cripple Who Is Whole" in 2016. The recipient of the 2014 Fred Wm. Simpson Prize for English Verse, Riddle has performed stages on both sides of Australia and in Singapore, and last year rereleased The Cripple Who Is Whole to an international audience. His sophomore collection "Suburbia" is due out later this year.
We also came across this poem of his on a UWA website:
The venue is The Moon Café, 323 William St, Northbridge and on ZOOM.
