animalia

I'm heading over east this week, first to do some things in Sydney and then heading up to Newie, en train, so to speak, to do a panel discussion and a reading for the critical animals gigs at TINA.

Sat 3 Oct: 9.30am – 11.00am
CONTEMPORARY POETICS (LOOKING IN): THE PLACE OF THE EXPERIMENTAL IN CONTEMPORARY AUSTRALIAN POETRY
City Hall: Banquet Room

Is experimental poetry now the norm in Australia and what does experimental mean in 2009? Who makes up the audience for experimental poetry? Does the diversity in Australian poetic practice entail a progressive, permissive playing-field? This engaging and exploratory panel discussion includes readings by the panellists.

Featuring: Stu Hatton, Derek Motion, Michael Farrell, Jill Jones

Facilitator: Aden Rolfe


Sun 4 Oct: 9.00 – 10.00am
BREAKFAST POETRY COLLAGE READING
City Hall: Banquet Room

A selection of Australia’s most interesting experimental poets read their collaged and cut-up works. Come and join us for coffee, a croissant and some radical language play.

Featuring: Michael Farrell, Jill Jones, Stuart Cooke, Jal Nicholl
