Saturday 20th April, Julian Matthews + open-mike, only at The Moon!

Perth Poetry Club has wonderful poet Julian Matthews plus open-mike this Saturday 20th April, 2pm-4pm, at The Moon Café and only at The Moon.

Julian Matthews will be in Perth and performing live - there will be no Zoom.

Julian Matthews is a Pushcart-nominated poet, and the offspring of mixed minorities from Malaysia. He is published in Red Room Poetry, Beltway Quarterly, and the American Journal of Poetry, among other journals and anthologies. He stumbled onto poetry by accident seven years ago at a writing workshop. That happy accident has turned into a rabid compulsion. He is still extricating himself from the crash. Welcome to his recovery. If you wish to support his practice, please Paypal him at or send him Wordle answers at

Join us to celebrate poetry at The Moon from the back room, and only from the back room.
