This Saturday 2nd February 2019 we have two wonderful poets, Niel Smith + Fable Goldsmith, and open-mike.
Niel Smith is a first generation Australian, father of five and a primary school principal. As a spoken word artist Niel cuts to the heart of today’s societal and political issues in an honest, personal and, sometimes humorous, perspective.
Fable Goldsmith is a performance poet who resides in Perth Western Australia. Since the creation of their very first poem in May 2017, Fable has been awarded a number of opportunities including features at Perth Poetry Festival, Spoken Word Perth and Perth Fringe Festival. After winning the State Final, Fable recently performed to a sell-out crowd at the Sydney Opera House, placing 3rd in Australia for the 2018 Australian Poetry Slam. As a gender diverse, queer mother of 3 children with disabilities, Fable's work is often confronting but offers to expose the fragility and strength that exists within adversity, in an attempt to use poetry as a platform for awareness, acceptance and change.
Join us at Perth Poetry Club this Saturday afternoon 2pm - 4pm at the Moon Café, 323 William Street Northbridge to hear Niel Smith + Fable Goldsmith.
