Saturday 30th of April, Jessie Appleyard, Brian Dunne aka Prozac Boy and Maddie Godfrey!

Jessie Appleyard (pictured left) is a make up artist, recent poet & raspberry tartlet enthusiast. After graduating from her fashion degree, she costumed shows in New York but it wasn't until she moved back home that she became involved with Spoken Word Perth. She now regularly hosts their open mic nights & has trouble keeping the plants in her house alive. 

Brian Dunne aka Prozac Boy (pictured middle): he's Perth's premier poet, he's the acme of Australian alliterists. And, after a decade away, he's back!  Prozac Boy is the author of two collections of poetry; the sold out and now phenomenally hard to find Emotional Baggage Carousel and Blind, which is still available to buy from the guy himself.

His controversial poem-play Blind will be performed at the Moon Café.  It has been performed across Australia, most notably for the South Australian Writer's Centre during the Adelaide Fringe.  As this play is to be experienced as a continuous thread, Prozac Boy has asked that any applause be withheld until the end of the performance.

Maddie Godfrey (pictured right)

Maddie Godfrey is a Perth-bred poet currently living in London. She is a pole dancer and burrito enthusiast who adores anything purple or glittery. Her work has been published in magazines, anthologies, international newsletters, feminist websites and on a poster at the University of Western Australia. At age 20, Maddie has performed at The Bowery Poetry Club, the Nuyorican Cafe and the Sydney Opera House. She has also won poetry slams in Perth, Oxford, Cambridge and all over London. Recently Kat Francois described Maddie as "a poetry fireball". Above all, Maddie's writing expresses an emotive honesty that is "strong in the softest way".

Come along and see these fine poets this Saturday 30th April 2016 at the Moon Café 323 William Street Northbridge.  Open mike as always.
