My local council, the City of Onkaparinga, is a very progressive municipality which fosters the Arts. I know I’m biased, having won their inaugural Best Single Poet’s Collection in 2006, but I think they do a tremendous job on the local level. Poetry Unleashed 2010, now underway, involves poetry competitions for kids through to adults and a smorgasbord of accessible poetry events for the public. I’m involved with Candles, Wine and Classics at Leconfield Winery, McLaren Vale this Saturday night Sept 4 along with Jill Gower, Julian Zytnik, Ray Tyndale and Mary Bradley.
On Sunday Sept 5 I’ll be performing in the open Spoken Word competition at the Singing Gallery, McLaren Vale. There’s also a Poets & Pizza night
with Geoff Goodfellow, Alice Sladdin, Jill Wherry and David Cookson.
Oh, and a Great Debate that Poetry Sux. Onya onka!
