COTEMPORARY POETRY READINGS SHINE OUTSIDE BIG CITY LIGHTS
Solidifying for me is an opinion that the best readings in Victoria are occurring outside of the City (or the CBD anyway). Attended a wonderful reading at the WORDTREE in Upwey today, where featured reader, Claire Gaskin gave a sensitive reading of new work, teasing an upcoming new book from John Leonard Press. This was admirably supported by an open section of strength and diversity. Maurice McNamara, Jennifer Compton, Michelle Lieber and Catherine Bateson stood out for me. Following on from the stunning performances at the Guildford readings near Castlemaine I truly recommend trekking out of the city for a surprising and uplifting poetry experience.
