The P Word Sessions May 2022: Not Exactly Normal But Then We Never Were!

May 1, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

It’s all going down Sunday May 1st at 4pm, it’s at the sparkly new Motley Bauhaus located at 118 Elgin st Carlton, it’s still only $5 on the door with all that scratch going to our top flight features.  And who are they…….?
Ross Donlon  &  Es Foong
Bios below but if you don’t know you bloody well should. They rock. They roll. They wail.
Anth is gonna be lone wolf on this one as Amanda is off sharing her own dazzling art so on top of all the other reasons (Ross, Es, the open), come see how confuddled and bambuzzled it gets as Anth attempts to herd you wild creatures on his oddy knocky.
Ross Donlon is represented in a number of poetry anthologies including : the moon landing, WW1, Sydney crime, refugees, love poems, this house my body, Sydney rivers, poems of hope and Contemporary Australian poetry. His poetry is wide ranging, dark to comic. Winner of two international poetry prizes, he is publisher of Mark Time Books and convenor of Agitation Poets, Castlemaine (poetry from Agitation Hill.) He has published five books of poetry, including The Blue Dressing Gown, father poems made into a radio feature and Sjovegen, The Sea Road in Norwegian and English. His latest books are The Bread Horse and For the Record.
Es Foong is astounded to be a poet, flash fictionista and spoken word performer based in Naarm (Melbourne). Her poetry appears in print and online including the Australian Poetry Journal, Cold Mountain Review, and “Borderless: A transnational anthology of feminist poetry” “published by Recent Work Press. Her performance persona, Waffle Irongirl has featured at spoken word events around Australia including Passionate Tongues, La Mama Poetica, That Poetry Thing That’s On at Smith’s Every Monday. On-stage, she is the poetic analogue of heavy-metal karaoke. Off-stage, she eats identity labels for breakfast. She lives online at waffleirongirl.com.
