QPF2018 kicks off in a couple of weeks!
I’m looking forward to reading new poems (and a few from Glasshouses) at The Big Read, Saturday 25 August, 4.30–6pm, alongside Alison Whittaker, Tricia Dearborn, Fury the Poet, Laniyuk Garcon-Mills, Zenobia Frost and Rae White.
On the same day, from 6–7pm, Rae White will launch Milk Teeth (UQP), their Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize-winning debut collection, and be in conversation with R.A. Briggs, author of Free Logic (UQP) and Common Sexual Fantasies, Ruined (Cordite Books).
I’m keen to attend Lines of Faith, featuring Lachlan Brown, Sarah Saleh and Anna Jacobson; Alexis Lateef’s Both Sides Of Wellness; Rebecca Jessen and Zenobia Frost’s The Bachelorette: A Song Cycle; Scott-Patrick Mitchell’s Personal Mythologies as a Path to Healing; and Reading Queensland, featuring Shastra Deo, Graham Akhurst, Ella Jeffery and Jared Bruinstroop.
Borrowed Verse, featuring Tom Cooney, Pascalle Burton, Matt Hetherington, Nausicaa and Paul Bonetti, is on Sunday 26 August, 3–4pm.
On the same day, from 4–5pm, Matt Hetherington will launch The Love of the Sun (Recent Work Press).
Hope to see some of you there! Full program here.
