Zorro dog

Now don’t forget that Page Seventeen is currently open for submissions until June 30 so check the submission/competition guidelines carefully…

I am fortunate enough to be judging the poetry competition this year, so I’m looking forward to reading some strong poems.

Also, Express Media in partnership with the Emerging Writers Festival, is presenting a mini workshop series in May. I’ll be running a workshop on performance poetry, alongside Lisa Dempster (Independent Publishing) and Ben Eltham (pitching)

And make sure to check out Lisa Dempster’s site, Unwakeable. At moment you’ll find pictures of her little dog dressed as Zorro. Just without the mask.

Oh and I’m on a panel for the Emerging Writers Festival too…

Art vs. Craft?
One of our special Two Sides of the Coin debates where writers debate with themselves. Is it all about lyrical musings regardless of plot and structure, or can you put any old a pap down if the plot rocks? Obviously you need both…obviously. Obviously?

With Nathan Curnow, Kirk Marshall, & Elise Hurst
Hosted by Susan Hayes

12:30 Sunday the 31st of May
Yarra Room, Melbourne Town hall

The EWF program is being launched on the 23rd April.

Thanks for the plug Nathan. I hope you get to read some ace poems in the comp too.

And I look forward to seeing you at the EWF.

Cool, see you at the EWF! Your panel sounds interesting.

I'm sure judging the Page Seventeen comp will be fun, too.

I reckon Express Media should put all workshops on in the same room at the same time in a big workshop-free-for-all-frenzy. That would be fun. Not so useful perhaps, but definitely fun.

See ya at the festival!
