Making Poems Out of Place: A Celebration of John Kinsella and Western Australian Writing
For more than 30 years and in more than 30 books, John Kinsella’s poetry and poetics have been passionately engaged with the problem of making poems out of place, and with the politics of “making” and the politics of “place”.
Join us in this celebration of Kinsella’s work and its influence on poetry and the politics of place in Western Australia.
In the first part of the evening, Dr Tony Hughes-d’Aeth, author of the newly released study of the literature of the WA wheatbelt, Like Nothing on this Earth, will launch Firebreaks: Poems (W. W. Norton), Graphology: Poems 1955-2015 (Five Islands Press), Drowning in Wheat: Selected Poems (Picador), The Fremantle Press Anthology of Western Australian Poetry (edited with Tracy Ryan), Old Growth (Transit Lounge), and Polysituatedness (Manchester University Press). John will read a selection of poems and passages from these books.
In the second part of the evening, some of WA’s most acclaimed poets will join together with John to read selections of their work from the new Fremantle press anthology. Poets include Tracy Ryan, Lucy Dougan, Kim Scott, Dennis Haskell, Wendy Jenkins, James Quinton, Scott-Patrick Mitchell, and Siobhan Hodge.
This is a free event. Hot food, vegan and non-vegan, will be served, and drinks are available from the bar.
Books will be available for sale from a Crow Books/New Edition stall.
