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

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.

Sydney Poetry Prize cancelled

Posted on February 11, 2013 at 10:00 3 Comments

With regret I'm announcing that won't be running the Sydney Poetry Prize this year.

The inaugural prize was a great success last year, a lot of fun to conduct, and it was something we had obviously hoped to continue.

However, like many ventures of this kind, the site is run by a small number of people in their spare time.

The Sydney Poetry Morning Herald – Tuesday, 28 February 2012
