Saturday 24th February, Peter Burges + Patrick 'Patch' Kain

This Saturday, it’s Peter Burges and Patrick “Patch” Kain as our features for 24th February 2018 at Perth Poetry Club.

Peter Burges is an eclectic reader (history, politics, biographies, fiction, science fiction, fantasy, crime, religious texts, cross-cultural issues, etc.), and has had a long term goal of becoming a writer (of poetry, short stories and novels).  So far he has had one poem published (by Unevenfloor, thanks to Jackson), and he hopes it is the first of many.
