A social site for poets in Sydney.
They couldn't see eye to eye,Just could not let the conflict lie,Same argument with endless battles that would not die. THEN A MIRACLE OCCURED!They saw the paradox,and in each other’s mirrorsa…Continue
Hi, my name is Bridget Cameron and come from the Sydney environs of Adelaide.
My interest in poetry began when I was 13, when we studied poetry at school. Coming from a large noisy family, I often escaped down to the creek and wrote for hours on end.
I'm basically a scholar-love to learn-and an artist, enjoy my time to create.
I had my first poem, From the blue whale to an ameoba we are all one! published when I was 14. This spurred me on to write more. I had numerous poems published in Rhythm Earth Journal, USA in 1992, too, which was great!
I went into self-publication for a while and self published 4 books of poetry; Between the Black and White Poles, 1993, Phoenix Rising, 1994, Neptune Dreams, 1997 and Awakenings, a spiritual journey, 2005.
Other poems have been published in Positive Words creative writing journal( Rainbow Press, Victoria), Black Ink, the Messenger Press, the Byron Bay Environment Centre Newsletter, on the 1997 Calendar of People, Family, Health and Community Services, in exhibitions, Nature Talk, Between the Black and white poles, The Elizabeth Woolcock project, my blog,.https://bridgetcameron.wordpress.com/ etc
I have a real passion for performance poetry and children's storytelling too...
I read and performed by children's stories at child-care centres, at pre-schools,primary schools, at libraries, during Book Weeks, at the Let's Read Launch for many years!
My performances include, guest poet and dancer at the Inaugural Fleurieau Winter Poetry Festival, 1996 The Seventeenth Idea at the Victor Harbour Folk Festival 1995. This event was unique in that it was the first time that poetry was included in the events! The Seventeenth Idea included original poetry, dance, music and slide projections.
Other events include; performances at the Lismore Poetry cafe 1995, at the CJ Dennis Festivals, 1992,3,4,5 at the Rhythm of Life Festival 1994, as a group, The Lounge Poets, in which we were filmed for SCAT TV, at the La Mama Theatre, 1994 and opening exhibitions such as the Great Manifestations exhibition- for Stanley Street Art Students- and more recently, have participated in local Smash Poetry competitions 2010 and many following years.
I have been invited to be guest poet on 5UV Adelaide University radio, on 5RPH, 5DN and on FMJJJ. Have taught poetry and had poetry performances for children and adults alike, at cafes, libraries and schools over many years, too.
I love the more supernatural elements in writing saturated with the realistic and comedic. I try to be meaningful in a fun way!
I believe that poets are the mouthpiece for collective consciousness, and therefore have a very important role to play in society.
All the best to poets everywhere!
This cute little poem is about the acceptance of difference. It is aimed at children 3-5 years of age. I would be very grateful if anyone who has children, neices, nephews, grandchildren or friends of this age group to check it out and read it. Thank you, Bridget CameronContinue
