Queensland Poetry Festival is just around the corner: 25th-28th August.
I’m very happy to announce that Glasshouses will be launched at QPF by friend, writer and music-maker Matt Hetherington on Saturday 27th August, 2.30-3.15pm in the Judith Wright Centre’s Shopfront. A free event, hosted by UQP’s Felicity Plunkett. Book signing afterwards.
I’m also appearing (with Bronwyn Lea, Chloe Wilson, Brett Dionysius, Stuart Cooke, Ellen van Neerven, MC Wire, Brentley Frazer, Melissa Lucashenko and Matt Hetherington) at The Big Read on Friday 26th August, 3.30-4.30pm in the Judith Wright Centre’s Performance Space. Another free event, hosted by Toby Fitch.
Would love to see you at one or both.
