This week’s Perth Poetry Club proves to be an entertaining one with two interesting features, Amanda Joy and Maria de Cinque.
Described by Robert Adamson as “a poet alive with her vision” Amanda Joy is a poet, visual artist and activist, born in the Kimberley region of Western Australia. Her work is included in anthologies and journals including The Best Australian Poems, the special May issue of Poetry Chicago, featuring Australian Poets and Australian Book Review. She has won prizes and awards including a Highly Commended for The Blake Poetry Prize and was the winner of this year’s prestigious Peter Porter Prize. She is a selector for Creatrix Haiku Journal and the author of two poetry chapbooks, Not Enough to Fold and Orchid Poems and poetry book In Hand. Currently she is finalising a manuscript titled Snake Like Charms.
Maria de Cinque is a recent regular to Perth Poetry Club. Her poetry is informed by life’s journey; how people inter-relate and perceive themselves and others. She has a Masters in ThetaHealing and practises in that field, and volunteers as a mentor at John Forrest Secondary School and teacher catechist at St Denis Parish. Maria believes we are here on borrowed time and the hour glass is speeding. She has been writing poetry for quite a few years, and this hobby has become her passion to inspire all ages to express their human soul - her poems resonate with confident, sensuous emotion and orchestrate with connective essence. This Saturday is further opportunity to explore and enjoy her poetic essence.
Join us this Saturday afternoon 2pm-4pm at The Moon Café 323 William Street Northbridge to hear Amanda Joy and Maria de Cinque. Open-mike as always,
In the next few weeks we have equally fabulous features:
