Lou Steer commented on Adrian Wiggins's blog post Gender bias in Australian poetry

Hi Adrian,
thanks for the invite and congrats on the new bub. This is in your house, no? What a cool idea! Can't go out and see the poetry so bring it to your loungeroom. I'd love to come, but I'm living in Sri Lanka at the moment which makes it a bit tricky. Like the site too - looking forward to ahvign a poke around it
Cheers

My energies promoting poetry are already expended via my Immersants meetup group which favours a breakdown in the performer-audience divide. As such I welcomed the Auburn poets collaboration with the Rookwood Cemetary sculpture tour/exhibition, Slam Poetry, Laurie Anderson, open-mic events, and incorporating snippets of poetry written real-time by "audience members" into my VJ'ing.
