Thanks to the Adelaide City Library and Spoken Word SA for my successful residency at the library throughout November. I used the time to familiarize myself with the facilities, meet and get feedback from the patrons and do a weekly performance of some of my work on the theme of “Lost & Found”, culminating in a final performance of new work. The audience was given a booklet of my new work to take away.
The new work (including accompanying original music and slideshow) will be added to the library’s digital collection. I was also guest blogger for the Adelaide Reads website for the month of November on the theme of Lost Manuscripts. Thanks to Shane, Ilona, Zhi and all the anonymous patrons who contributed in some way to my poems. Thanks too to the incredibly helpful library staff – in particular Jo, Peter, Gemma, Pru, Patricia, Luke & Dave.
