First and most exciting is that the programme for the Queensland Poetry Festival 2013 is out. It's here, and if you'll be in Brisbane during the 23rd to 25th August, then you'd be wise to stop on by. Most events are free to attend, with only the workshops and 'Set Fire to the Air' on the Friday night attracting fees. So there's really no excuse. I love this festival. See you there.
I'm particularly excited to have enrolled in the workshop series with 2013 Arts Queensland Poet in Residence, Canadian poet Shane Rhodes. Can't wait.
If waiting until August seems a little more than you can stand, head on over here. Pascalle Burton's Letter.Box.Stamp.Collect. is an installation that forms part of the 2013 festival and she has already been gathering poems (including one from yours truly), so head on over and check it out. You don't even need to be in Brisbane!
