Glen Phillips, born in 1936 in Southern Cross WA, has taught all his working life with 50 years at ECU and is internationally recognised and published.  He is Director of the International Centre for Landscape and Language at ECU, an Honorary Professor, and patron of KSP Writers’ Centre.  Glen’s poems have been published in more than 50 anthologies, journals and newspapers in Australia, Asia, America and Italy and he has read poetry to audiences at festivals or conferences in most Australian state capitals and in towns all over his home state of WA.  He has been invited to read poetry at Cambridge University (UK) and Kenyon College (Ohio), and at universities in Italy, Spain, Denmark, China, India, Thailand and Singapore.  His poems have been screened on ABCTV and SBS and regional TV networks.

Some of the Slings & Arrows series were previously launched at the Club, and their satire and irreverence fits in well with our open-mike.
