September has seen an abundance of creative verse vocalised, written, and discussed at a range of poetry themed events in the Library. Early September featured ‘Are you brave enough to be a poet’ a forum on poetry presented by local publisher Ginninderra Press. Local poets recited their works and then fielded questions from the floor in a forum discussion. Friendly Street Poets, a South Australian institution, held one of their monthly evening readings at the Library, featuring twenty poets reciting works, from deep and thought provoking verse, to humorous poems, limericks and haiku. North Eastern Writers’ Inc launched their first poetry anthology, NEW Voices at a special event at the Library at the end of the month. Published poet and SA Writer’s centre staff member and disability writer-in-residence, Jude Aquilina launched the event with ten of the NEW Inc poets reciting works that appear in the anthology. It’s great to see such a range of talented people from the local area presenting their work and also seeing it in print!
