Belieffrom Flying Islands Books & Cerberus Press Les Wicks’ 14th book is being launched by distinguished poet Margaret Bradstock. Belief… an almost impregnable construct madeout of nothing.Each of us ridicules but clings to it. Laugh & rage along while we explore this proposition. Some commentary on previous books: …self-aware, debonair, generous, weary, even despondent, yet never despairing.Dominique Hecq …visual and tonal senses, shown through a series of relentless escapes and…See More

October 27, 2018 from 3pm to 5pm

Hi Les, and welcome to the Sydney Poetry social site. You are member #45 (not that we're handing out cards or anything).

Have a read of the welcome note (if you haven't checked it out already) to find out more about the site.

I hope you enjoy your time here, and if you do, please feel free to invite other poets (and poetry teachers, readers, writers, performers) you know to join.

Also please introduce yourself with a few words in the editable text box on your profile page.

Best wishes,

Hey Les,

I see you're doing a poetry workshop at the NSW Writers Centre. When I'm putting events into the site calendar I tend to skip over courses, but that's just me. I'd encourage, and would love to see, you promote the workshops here on sydneypoetry.com in the events section.
