A series of events and seminars focused on showcasing and sharing poetry to help celebrate World Poetry Day (21st March). The observance of World Poetry Day is also meant to encourage a return to the oral tradition of poetry recitals, to promote the teaching of poetry, to restore a dialogue between poetry and the community so that the art of poetry will no longer be considered an outdated form of art, but one which enables society as a whole to regain and assert its identity.
Of our emerging poets who entered this program, we are excited to showcase six of them here in this anthology. Josephine Clarke, Fable Goldsmith. Ruari Jack Hughes, Taonga Sendama, Sunny Wignall and Colin Young are each incredibly gifted poets in their own right.
WA Poets Inc is managed entirely by volunteers and is dedicated to promoting and developing poets and poetry. We are located in Perth, Western Australia, but welcome networking opportunities with national and international poets.
WA Poets Inc relies on membership fees to help cover some of the costs associated with presenting poetry events and programs.
Membership is from 1st July to 30th June.
