Saturday 2nd April, War Haiku + open-mike!, via Zoom

Perth Poetry Club this Saturday 2nd April has had to cancel wonderful poet Yvonne Patterson’s feature.

We had Ben, sound engineer, get Covid – that was on Sunday.  Elio has had to do a PCR and mini-quarantine for safety sake.  Elio was closest to Ben last Saturday – both were wearing masks.  Technically Elio is not a close contact, but we have erred on the side of caution.  Also we liaised with Yvonne as what to best do from her perspective. 

We will re-schedule Yvonne and we will not meet at the Moon Café this week.
