POETRY READING ON THE TERRACE
Dangerously Poetic Press is holding a free evening of poetry and music on our newly refurbished balcony. The theme is Love Poems for the Earth. The Murwillumbah area has recently become home to award- winning poets, Nola Firth and Matt Hetherington, who will both be featured. Nola won the Byron Writers Festival Dangerously Poetic Prize last year with her poem 'Counting on Murwillimbah'. She is currently working on a book of poems about the area. Matt, who has recently moved to Uki from the Melbourne poetry scene, has just published a collection entitled ‘For Instance’ and has another on the way. An experienced teacher, he is also about to teach a creative writing course through Murwillumbah Community College.  Bring along a poem on the theme for the Open Section, whether your own or one you love by someone else. Local singer/songwriter Elizabeth Lord, will regale you with her tender jazzy songs. Snacks and drinks will be available for purchase. All welcome....!
