Hi, my name is Bridget Cameron and come from the Sydney environs of Adelaide.

My interest in poetry began when I was 13, when we studied poetry at school. Coming from a large noisy family, I often escaped down to the creek and wrote for hours on end.

 

I'm basically a scholar-love to learn-and an artist, enjoy my time to create.


I had my first poem, From the blue whale to an ameoba we are all one! published when I was 14. This spurred me on to write more. I  had numerous poems published in Rhythm Earth Journal, USA in 1992, too, which was great!

 

I went into self-publication for a while and self published 4 books of poetry; Between the Black and White Poles, 1993, Phoenix Rising, 1994, Neptune Dreams, 1997 and Awakenings, a spiritual journey, 2005. 

 

Other poems have been published in Positive Words,  creative writing journal( Rainbow Press, Victoria), and on the 1997 Calendar of People, Family, Health and Community Services.

I have a real passion for performance poetry...

 

My performances include, guest poet and dancer  at the Inaugural Fleurieau Winter Poetry Festival, 1996 The Seventeenth Idea at the Victor Harbour Folk Festival 1995. This event was unique in that it was the first time that poetry was included in the events! The Seventeenth Idea included original poetry, dance, music and slide projections.

 

Other events include; performances at the Lismore Poetry cafe 1995, at the CJ Dennis Festivals, 1992,3,4,5 at the Rhythm of Life Festival 1994, as a group, The Lounge Poets, in which we were filmed for SCAT TV, at the La Mama Theatre, 1994 and opening exhibitions such as the Great Manifestations exhibition- for Stanley Street Art Students-  and more recently,  have participated in local Smash Poetry competitions 2010.

I have been invited to be guest poet on 5UV Adelaide University radio, on 5RPH, 5DN and on FMJJJ.  Have taught poetry and had poetry performances for children and adults alike, at cafes, libraries and schools over many years, too.

I love the more supernatural elements in writing saturated with the realistic and comedic. I try to be meaningful in a fun way!

I believe that poets are the mouthpiece for collective consciousness, and therefore have a very important role to play in society.

 

All the best to poets everywhere!

 

Cheers, Bridget

Hi Bridget, and welcome to the Sydney Poetry social site.

I've gotten a bit behind with my welcome notes, but I hope you've already found your way around the site.

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:
  • add poetry events, photos and videos to the site,
  • write blog posts, or start topics in the forum,
  • add your own poetry to the site in the Member's Poetry section,
  • invite poets (and teachers, readers, writers, performers) you know to join,
  • comment on just about everything, or
  • just keep an eye on what's happening.
This being a social site the more we all do here the more interesting it becomes for everyone.

There's no membership fee and no middlewoman – there is though just a bit of moderation to keep it clean and on-topic.

So we all know a bit more about your interest in poetry please introduce yourself, what you write, what you read etc with a few words in the editable text box on your profile page.

Best wishes,
Adrian

Hello Bridget, thank you, you're very kind to say so. I hope to see you at readings in future!

Thank you, muchly, Bridget. The smile comes from Yvoire - a small French village on the border of Swtizerland and France. It was a beautiful village clothed in medieval architecture. My husband and I were on our honeymoon and we decided, unlike most tourists, to sit the 2 hours out at a quaint little restaurant and absorb the atmosphere around us as it passed us by.

In the last year, I have published in Nebulab, Eureka Street, Melaleuca and more recently, Poetrix. Here is a couple of links: http://www.nobleworld.biz/nebulab/nebulabjuly2010.html

I hope to share more with Sydney Poetry readers.

Thank you for your comments about using artists in school - I too believe that creative incursions are a great way to engage students with experts.  It seems there is this romantic image of the poet or artist as wandering minstrel, doing their art 'for the love' and so somehow not requiring money to put food on the table!  But also I can say there is just not enough training at all  for teachers in drama and other artistic methods.  I find myself now having to self-teach to a big extent, as I see the benfits of drama and other processes in learning, but see how inadequately equipped I am to facilitate it :/

Sorry Bridget, I was slow accepting the friend offer. I didn't know Sydney poetry had this facility!
