This Saturday (10th December 2016) our feature poet is Virginia O’Keefe, and if the stars and planets align themselves we expect to have Glen Phillips reading John Ryan’s poetry.
Virginia O'Keeffe has lived across most states and taught in high schools for most of her life. She is fascinated by social history. She has been short listed twice for the Tom Collins prize and been commended in the Creatrix Poetry Awards. She has also written short stories and a column in her local monthly suburban magazine.
The Writing Connection 2017
The Grammar of Love
a course in meaning
The course content is based on the idea that the pivotal stages in world literature express stages of relatedness or love.
In The Grammar of Love we will look at the way that significant writers have dealt with these stages in their work. We will use their attempts as a springboard for our own writing.
Since 2014, Borrowed Verse has worked with 17 incredible musicians and poets from around Australia, including acclaimed songwriter Ben Salter and award-winning poet Herb Wharton. Artists are currently working on new songs for the album, including Augie March frontman Glenn Richards and Angie Hart, one of the songwriting forces behind art-pop legends Frente!
The project has gathered momentum premiering new work for TEDxBrisbane and the Brisbane Fringe Festival, with upcoming feature shows at the Woodford Folk Festival later this year.
