Saturday 16th October, Daragh Byrne + open-mike! at the Moon and on Zoom

This Saturday 16th October we have wonderful poet Daragh Byrne (NSW) + open-mike at the Moon Café and on Zoom.

Daragh Byrne is an Irish poet living and writing on Gadigal land (Sydney).  He is widely published in journals and anthologies in Australia and Ireland, including Westerly, Crossways Literary Magazine, The Blue Nib, The Honest Ulsterman, Backstory and Live Encounters. He has won prizes or been commended in numerous competitions, recently being awarded Highly Commended in the Winchester Poetry Prize.

Daragh is the convener of the Sydney Poetry Lounge, a long-running open mic night that has featured many of Australia’s most well-known poets.  He pays his rent by writing software, which he often finds as frustrating, and satisfying, as writing poetry.

You can read some of his poetry via his personal website (linked below), or on Instagram @hellostillness.

Please join us to celebrate poetry this Saturday afternoon 2pm - 4pm, with usual open-mike as well.

The venue is Moon Café, 323 William St, Northbridge and on ZOOM.
