SpeedPoets keeps the poetry coming at Brew (Lower Burnett Lane, Brisbane City) from 2pm – 5:30pm. The month of July features the re-launch of Pascalle Burton’s reversible poetry project on 45rpm vinyl, The Outlandish Watch in collaboration with David Stavanger and Nathan Shepherdson.
The July gig will also feature the debut feature reading from Brisbane poet and songwriter, Clinton Toghill from The Bell Divers as well as serving up the regular delights of free zines, raffles, the guitar roar of Sheish Money & Giselle Sheehy and Brisbane’s hottest Open Mic Section. And let’s not forget that all poets in the Open Mic are in contention to be named Call Back Poet of the month!
The Call Back Poet is selected by the monthly features and given the opportunity to perform a mini-feature to close the event (2 poems) as well as win the right to perform at the last gig of 2012 and be in the running for cash prizes and the title SpeedPoets Open Mic Champion for 2012.
June Call Back Poet was Michael Cohen for his mesmerising poem that paid homage to Wallace Stevens and the humble sausage roll.
So come along and take in the SpeedPoets experience… we’ve been keeping poetry fast in Brisbane for more than a decade!
