Saturday 17th of June, Andrew Burke and Brad Brittain!

Our feature poets are Andrew Burke and Brad Brittain, this Saturday 17th June 2017 at Perth Poetry Club.

Andrew Burke was born in Victoria in 1944, then moved to WA as a toddler. He was educated there, then hitchhiked (in the ‘60s) to further his education at factories, etc, in Melbourne and Sydney. After work at radio stations in Perth, he went on to be a Creative Director in advertising agencies, all the time writing stories, plays and poems. In middle-age he went into academia, studying and lecturing in writing and literature. Burke has published twelve poetry collections, one novel and a smattering of short stories.

After five years living in the Riverina area of New South Wales, he returned to Perth in 2017.
