Come join me at QPF 2016:

MYSTERIOUS WAYS, Friday 26th  1pm-2pm, JWC Shopfront – FREE

Poets work in mysterious ways, not just in their poetry but in their vocations, working not just as poets but as publishers, editors, academics, or all of the above. Join four such poets, Felicity Plunkett, Brentley Frazer, Dr Jeanine Leane and chair Justin Clemens, as they read their work and discuss how they work. Presented in conjunction with the Australian Poets Festival.
