A social site for poets in Sydney.
The Cafe Poet Program places poets in cafes as ‘poets in residence’ for a six month period. The poet is given space to write (maybe two or three times a week – in consultation with the cafe) as well as complimentary tea and/or coffee and in return the cafe gets to be part of this community, promotion and the opportunity to plan events with the poet enriching the cultural life of the cafe (and hopefully the number of patrons). The program began at AP in February 2009 and has been a huge success, placing more than twenty poets in cafes all over the country and receiving extensive media coverage. We have also connected cafe poets with various opportunities including working with RMIT media students and being published in the 2009 edition of Blue Dog: Australian Poetry. Check out the Cafe Poet facebook page.
