ORGANZIER: Ian Mackay
This Sat Sept 24, we’re holding our annual Poets’ Breakfast in Kenilworth, Queensland, Australia, and given the date coincidence and the compatibility of aims, I’d like to register as part of 100 TPC.
Our breakfast will feature a dozen or so performance poets, mostly from the rhyming genre, and, going on past years, will hopefully draw a crowd of around 200.
It’s the annual fundraiser for our Conondale Range Committee, one of the oldest conservation groups on the Sunshine Coast.
Poets featured this year include Robin Archbold (“Archie”), past winner of the Slam at Woodford, Shirley Friend, Manfred Vigars, Mark Feldman, Harry Donnelly (Sunshine Coast ABC’s Poet-in-residence), Bazza the Bush Balladeer, Wendy Green, Lyle Smith and more. Oh and me, Ian Mackay, who also will do the MC role.
Further details start 8am Kenilworth Showgrounds, Sunshine Coast hinterland Cost $5, breakfast and refreshments available…. part of Kenilworth Celebrates festival…. an art festival.
