Saturday 17th April, Barry Sanbrook and Ross Jackson + open-mike! at the Moon & on Zoom

This Saturday 17th April 2pm-4pm we have the wonderful poets Barry Sanbrook, Ross Jackson + open-mike at the Moon Café and on Zoom.

Barry Sanbrook is artist and poet, and haiku afficionado; being judge and selector for the Creatrix Haiku Prize and Anthology 2020 and active member and contributor to Haiku societies locally and nationally.

His family history appears on the Welcome Walls project, Fremantle; having migrated in 1968.  Barry has Engineering and Arts degrees, and that has informed his work as poet and artist.

He is the author of a novel The Night Parrot Sings, set in the battlefields of Flanders and the outback of Australia, highlighting and contrasting the battle for survival of a soldier facing the prospect of charging an enemy and the Night Parrot considered extinct in its battle with habitat. Barry will concentrate on his poetry this Saturday.

Ross Jackson writes contemporary free verse poetry. Since his life has been almost free of interesting content, his poems are mostly based upon observations of others, or taken from his imagination.

Ross is a member of OOTA Writers. He has had work published in many literary magazines and poetry websites. Time alone on a quiet path came out in 2020 with UWAP.

Ross has no fixed opinions. For wisdom he looks deep into his dog’s eyes.
