Saturday 22nd of July, Peter Jeffery!

Our feature poet is Peter Jeffery, this Saturday 22nd July 2017 at Perth Poetry Club. 

Peter Jeffery OAM is heavily involved in the arts, be it Multicultural Art, Radio and Community Television, WA Poetry Inc.; to name a few.  Peter is a previous winner of The Tom Collins Prize and the Randolph Stow Prize.  He has been published in magazines such as The Bulletin, Westerly, and Overland, and in several anthologies of WA Literature.  His previous poetry books are Scapes (1970) and True to Poetry in my Fashion (2015).  He has edited many poetry publications including God in the Afternoon, Cautious Birds, Creatrix Online, and Regime.  His recent chapbook is a cycle of poems, Ostia Antica.

He is described in various on-line biographies as a retired university lecturer, but retired he certainly is not.  Peter has been and continues to be tireless in supporting the poetry, writing and art of many Australian writers and artists.  Peter has been a great supporter of Perth Poetry Club and we return the favour.  Please join us at The Moon Café, 323 William Street Northbridge this Saturday 2pm-4pm to hear Peter Jeffery.  Open-mike as always.
