Saturday 2nd March, Peter Burges + David Moore!

This Saturday 2nd March 2019 we have Peter Burges + David Moore, and open-mike.

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.

His feature will include the performance of two long poems, one in each half:

Saturday 23rd February, Mega Open-Mike!

This Saturday 23rd February 2019 we have our first Mega Open-Mike event for the year.

Perth Poetry Club holds Mega Open-Mikes quarterly as an opportunity for every open-miker to be a feature with 5 minutes (maximum) of performance time.

Best to prepare your performance. Try something different, experimental. Edit and refresh your poems. Hone your performance skills.

Past events have been memorable for the quality of the poetry and performances.

Saturday 19th January, Ananda Barton + Jane Cornes Maclean!

This Saturday 19th January 2019 we have two wonderful poets, Ananda Barton + Jane Cornes Maclean, and open-mike.

Seventeen days after Ananda Barton was born the United States abandoned the gold standard, although there is no proven link between these two events.  Born in Western Australia and growing up in the South West, Ananda’s life has encompassed unemployment, studying ancient history at UWA, the State public service and appointment as an officer in the army of an unrecognized nation.
