Fremantle Poetry Month launch

Fremantle Poetry Month kicked off in style on Thursday 8 July. A crowd of more than 130 people crammed into the old museum hall at the Fremantle Arts Centre to celebrate three new collections: Burning Bright by Caroline Caddy, The West by John Mateer, and New Poets by Scott-Patrick Mitchell, J.P. Quinton and Emma Rooksby.

Poets were kept busy signing: (left to right) Caroline Caddy, Emma Rooksby, J.P. Quinton, Scott-Patrick Mitchell.
