Poetry Todd

What a fabulous event October's Kulturá was.

Ian Duhig delivered a enthralling lecture entitled, The Blind Man's Road and Wendy Pratt delighted us with her sterling poetry.

Eileen Earnshaw read her favourite poem,  Production Lines by Robyn Rowland (Gallipoli/Çanakkale 1915translated by Dr Mehmet Ali Çelikel, Five Islands Press) a Gallipoli poem from a female perspective.

Eight poets read enthusiastically in the open-mic. Members of the audience included the poets Sheila Wild, Judy Kendall and Peter Riley.  Mr Write Out Loud himself, globetrotter Julian Jordan, honoured us with his presence and a review.

Thanks to Dave and Svetta at Kava Cafe for the wonderful hospitality on the night and for allowing us to hire the whole of Kava form January 2016.

Clare Shaw is our guest lecturer in November's and Lucy Burnett the feature poet.
