This week Perth Poetry Club has a wonderful feature, Danijela Kambaskovic.
Danijela Kambaskovic is a poet and academic researcher working in the fields of literature and history of ideas at the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, Europe 1100-1800, The University of Western Australia. She is the author of three poetry books; the latest is Internal Monologues (Fremantle Press, 2013). Having migrated to Australia from the former Yugoslavia in 1999, she continues to write in Serbian and English, and is particularly interested in poetry translation and the effect of migration on writing (Southerly, September 2013) and female internal reality (Overland, January 2012).
Her previous poetry books of poetry were published in Serbian (Atlantis, 2006 and Journey, 2008); a selection from Journey in translation into English has appeared in Sydney’s Masthead. In 2008, she won the ACT David Campbell Memorial Poetry Prize with her poem “A Migrant on the Bus, Thinking of Kundera”, and her poems, chosen anonymously, appeared on posters in Canberra’s public transport for several years. Her humorous epic on female acts of heroism, The Williad: The Epic on the Epic can be found in the on-line Cordite Poetry Review.
Danijela’s short stories and poems have been anthologised in Europe and Australia, including in Anthologie de la Poésie Serbe Contemporaine (Un Infini Cercle Bleu, 2011) and Thirty Australian Poets (UQP, 2012). Her poems have been published in translation in Belgium, Russia, Poland and France.
So join Danijela Kambaskovic for wonderful poetry this Saturday 2pm-4pm at the Moon Café 323 William Street Northbridge. Open-mike as always.
