Lou Steer is attending Les Wicks's event


April 2, 2016 all day
Callout-ANTHOLOGY - AFTER GALLIPOLI/ ÇANAKKALE This is a call for poems for a project that will bring Turkish, Australian and New Zealand poets together to respond to the centenary of the Gallipoli campaign of 1915. This tragic offensive led to mutual suffering. One hundred years later, Turks, Australians and New Zealanders find they have much in common. In each case the bloody campaign proved to be nation and myth-making, with powerful implications for a national sense of identity today. The aim of the project is to encourage a conversation across cultures and languages that will culminate in the publication of a bilingual collection of English-language and Turkish-language poems loosely themed around the Gallipoli/ Çanakkale centenary commemorations. Send poems (maximum 2) to all 3 the Australasian editors – Kit Kelen KitKelen@gmail.com,  Robyn Rowland bysea@bigpond.com & Les Wicks…See More

Hello Lou and a warm welcome to Sydney Poetry.

This is a social site built by the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds) for the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds).

You can:

Good to see you getting involved already. This being a social site the more we all do here the more interesting it becomes for everyone.

While there's no editor deciding what gets published there is just a bit of post facto moderation to keep it clean and on-topic.

I hope you enjoy your time on the site and find it useful.

Best wishes,

Thanks darling, you're my first friend, yippee!! I'm trying to write a whole lot of new material for next week but am feeling uninspired. Don't you hate that? Will you get on the open mike?
