A spontaneous poetry event is coming to one of Bryndwr’s finest vacant lots.
Joel McKerrow” target=”_blank”>Joel McKerrow is touring NZ to share his amazing poetry, along with singer/songwriter Iris, who will also be performing.
We will start with open mic for locals, then let our guests do their thing.
When: 7:30pm, Friday 31 Jan
Where: 16.5 Truman Rd (it’s just a vacant back section, there will be a sign)
Wet weather venue is the lounge of the lovely Clyde Pride: 334 Clyde Rd.
Bring blankets, snacks, poetry, friends, and a koha to support our guests’ tour if you can.
Joel will also be running a poetry workshop from 5:30 the same evening, at my house (18 Truman Rd). Cost for this is $15.
Blurb on the workshop from Joel:
‘Come join Community Arts worker and Australian Touring Poet Joel McKerrow in his ‘Poetics of Identity’ workshop. The workshop takes people on a poetic process that intersects writing tools with self-reflection. For both beginners and experts in poetry this workshop will both give you new ways to write and new ways to think about your story.’
Please let me know if you want to come to the workshop so we know how many to expect.
