Saturday 2nd April, War Haiku + open-mike!, via Zoom

Perth Poetry Club this Saturday 2nd April has had to cancel wonderful poet Yvonne Patterson’s feature.

We had Ben, sound engineer, get Covid – that was on Sunday.  Elio has had to do a PCR and mini-quarantine for safety sake.  Elio was closest to Ben last Saturday – both were wearing masks.  Technically Elio is not a close contact, but we have erred on the side of caution.  Also we liaised with Yvonne as what to best do from her perspective. 

We will re-schedule Yvonne and we will not meet at the Moon Café this week.

We will however continue with the gig, via ZOOM, with:

WAR HAIKU WW1, WW2, Vietnam and other wars – why does Haiku gain a degree of prominence amidst the trenches and the horrors of war?

                              + Extended Open-mike

It will be a very different Zoom.  Please join us to celebrate poetry this Saturday afternoon 2pm - 4pm.

The venue is     ONLY ON ZOOM.

Gig details are: Perth Poetry Club is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting, NOT from Moon Cafe.

                 this Saturday, 2nd April 2022   2:00pm to 4:00pm   Perth Aus WST (GMT+8hrs).
