Saturday 25th of June, Becky Monks and Geoff Spencer!

This Saturday 25th June 2016, we have two great features by name of Becky Monks and Geoff Spencer.

Becky Monks is a 21-year-old performance poet and postgraduate Medical student at UWA, with a degree in German and 40 grand’s worth of HECS debt.  Becky is a member of the Said Poets’ Society and helps to run spoken word workshops in Perth high schools.  She is also a regular performer at Spoken Word Perth and Perth Slam.

Geoff Spencer is very simply:   a Perth Boy, born in the 40s, schooled in the 50s, married late 60s, two children early 70s, got a promotion mid-80s, just worked through the 90s, retired in the 00s (‘Noughties’), challenged greatly in the 10s (‘Tenzies’)  - then, with help, rediscovered language.

His Loves:-  My Family, Karri Forests, Red-tailed and Carnaby Cockatoos, Sunflowers, Snorkelling, Kayaking, Night Skies, Beethoven, Travelling, Vincent van Gogh, Tangents and being Obtuse.  Oh! and the Special People at “The Moon”.

His Philosophy - “I was put on this Earth to achieve many things.  At the moment, I’m so far behind . . I’m never going to die” -  {Lots to Learn!}
