Welcome to all who have subscribed or became a fan so far. It’s been an exciting start to Fremantle Poetry Month 2010.
This week we confirmed the line-up for our launch (get the date - 8 July 2010 - in your diary!). In addition to our Fremantle Poetry Month poets Caroline Caddy, Emma Rooksby, John Mateer, J.P. Quinton and Scott-Patrick Mitchell, we’ll feature performance poets Janet Jackson, Kevin Gillam, Nandi Chinna and Tracy Ryan plus live music from Xave Brown and Amber Fresh & Lil Leonie Lionheart.
New sponsor Radio Fremantle also came on board this week, with an offer to record our poets reading their work. We’ll be podcasting these poetry bites in the next few weeks, so keep your ear out.
Oh, and the winner of last week’s competition is: Mel Pearce. She’s won $100 worth of Fremantle Press books.
