Poetry surgeries and rev up workshop

 

Hello Perth writers, here’s a few things happening very soon! Get in touch if you are interested. https://cathdrake.com/contact-me/

Reading and writing rev-up  

An informal workshop of reading and discussing contemporary poets – inventive writers, those who play with the edge of prose, who find meaning via the side door: American and UK poets, and poets in translation. If there’s time and inclination afterwards we’ll do a quick writing exercise at the end or over lunch. Fremantle Arts Centre cafe, Friday 17th March 10am-12, $15. Contact Julie Watts from OOTA writer’s group (or me) to book a place and pay on the day. We need numbers for table booking and handout numbers. http://cathdrake.com

Poetry surgeries: I’m also booking a small number of one-to-one poetry feedback sessions between 14-24 March. Message me to book. Limited number, $50 for an hour session – send 3-5 poems.
