This Saturday I’m going to read some words down at the Poetry Club.
The website bills it as:
On 18 February at Perth Poetry Club you can hear the distinctive spoken sound of Cottonmouth favourite and underground publisher JEREMY BALIUS, plus the premiere feature of a new voice, CRAIG ROGERS. 2-4pm at The Moon, with open mike and professional sound as always.
Jeremy Balius was Dallas Texas born, Gießen Germany raised, Los Angeles California educated, and has lived in Fremantle Western Australia for the last seven years. He looks after Black Rider Press and hangs out with the Cottonmouth kids. wherein? he asks of memory is forthcoming from Knives Forks and Spoons Press (UK). He’s a Katherine Susannah Prichard 2012 Emerging Writer in Residence.
Craig Rogers grew up in Perth after emigrating from the UK in 1994. Before that he lived all over England and Scotland, including the Shetland islands, home-schooled for most of that time with his younger sister. He has had an on-again-off-again relationship with writing since childhood; but this has developed into more of an inward instinct than an external interest, particularly over recent years. He has been reading in the open mike at Perth Poetry Club for just over a year.
