Place in Poetry
Queensland Writers Week (October 10-16th) has been up and running in our fine State and as part of the celebrations Brisbane-based poetic guru Graham Nunn invited seven Queensland poets to:
‘discuss the role of place in their poetry. A sense of place plays an important role in the initiation of images for many poets. When a poet taps into the depth of their surroundings and is able to create images that bring the reader headlong into the environment that inspired them, it is a rare and blessed experience.’
I am pleased to be featured along with terrific poets like Samual Wagan Watson and Kristin Hannaford.
If you pop over to Another Lost Shark you can read my take on place in poetry (and the other poets who are from all over Queensland).
