This Saturday, it’s Andrea Lindell + Stephen Cole + Demie Scally as our features for 31st March 2018 at Perth Poetry Club.
Andrea Lindell began writing poetry and stories at a young age, and from 2005 to 2006 she was a member of ‘The Talented Young Writers’ Program’ at The Literature Centre in Fremantle. However, she discovered poetry more seriously at 19 when she was a cash-poor student studying a Physiotherapy degree and she needed a creative outlet that didn’t cost any money. Since pen and paper are relatively cheap, she started writing again and quickly found that she fell in love with words.
In 2015, Andrea won the Rockingham Castaway’s Poetry Competition with her poem, ‘Overwhelmed,’ and since 2016 she has been the facilitator of a monthly poetry group at the Rockingham Arts Centre. More recently, she has begun sharing her poems at events such as Voicebox and Perth Poetry Club.
Stephen Cole’s poetry has been well received and commended in many competitions. His first book of poetry Muse of Poetr, was sold-out, and in second print-run. Stephen has had some success in getting published in Positive Words, TAFE journals and various zines/books. His speciality is poetry about love. Stephen has been a stalwart of the Perth Poetry Club. If he is not here on a Saturday, we wonder where he is. Writing poetry has been an integral part of his life for a long-time.
Demie Scally is an emerging Perth poet only actively getting involved in the Perth poetry community in the last year. She recently performed at Fringe with the Star-Crossed poets and is currently gearing up to relocate to London. Primarily a performance poet, Demie likes to tell true stories using the medium of poetry.
