Saturday 20th of May, Liana Joy Christensen and Bill Jenkins!

We have two wonderful poets, Liana Joy Christensen and Bill Jenkins, this Saturday 20th May 2017 at Perth Poetry Club.

Liana Joy Christensen is emeritus M.C. of Voicebox, and this is her third appearance at its sister gig, the Moon, the last when she was a featured guest of the Perth Poetry Festival.  She has had a long sojourn in prose, writing the first of four speculative fiction novels, with the collective title of The Cantor Quartet.  She is delighted to be back in poetry land with a recent appearance in Rochford Street Review.  She works intermittently on an interminable poetry collection with the working title of Ghost Town, which she hopes to complete before she is one.
