Saturday 5th August, Josephine Clarke & Neil J (BRiLO) Pattinson + open-mike! at The Moon

Perth Poetry Club has wonderful poets Josephine Clarke & Neil J (BRiLO) Pattinson + open-mike this Saturday 5th August, 2pm-4pm, ONLY at The Moon Café.

Josephine Clarke writes poetry and short stories. She has been a member of Out of the Asylum Writers’ Group since 2005, and was a member of the collective that organised the Fremantle Voicebox poetry readings from 2007 – 2022. Her work has been published in various Australian journals. In 2020 UWA Press published her first collection of poetry, Recipe for Risotto.

As a first generation Australian, of Italian descent, her poetry and short stories reflect how culture survives migration through the domestic and the sensory. How do space, landscape and technology affect our experience of living, of family? Josephine’s published poetry collection looks back to her childhood on a farm in Pemberton and at contemporary life in historic Fremantle.

Neil J (BRiLO) Pattinson is a “Suburban born Melbourne evacuee with a rural upbringing, a West Coast runaway and has-been resources Corporate Sector raffscalian. Neil has been an organiser and contributor to Perth Poetry Club since its inception, is the creator of the Viable Human Mob, and is the world’s leading exponent of the HaaR Coooo form of poetry. His poetry in its various genres has been published in numerous zines, publications, and his own book (sold out).
