We are fortunate to have with us in Melbourne this month, a very cleaver cookie. Matt Gardner has figured a few things out that every poet considering self publishing needs to know. Matt is a #1 Amazon Bestseller who sold over 3,500 copies of his first self-published collection of poems in its first 90 days, and had his ebook downloaded over 10,500 times. He’s a natural force of positivity and full of the kind of questions that get you thinking in new ways. He’s also an experienced facilitator, who has recently been working as resident poet/marketing guru at a fancy retreat for high-flying people, some of whom he has also helped to reach Bestseller status.
If you have a book, manuscript, or a growing collection, come join us around the fire while we:
You’ll take away smiles, a buzzying sense of possibility and an action plan. Please don’t take our lego collection!
POSTY Poetry & Spoken Word Special Delivery is a new fortnightly open mic event hosted by Hamish Danks Brown a.k.a. Danksta Downunder. All welcome to distribute and sort their poetry on stage and to deliver it in any language. The Post is well located on the corner of Brighton Road and Inkerman Street. If you’re coming from North of the Yarra catch the number 3 or 67 trams from Swanston Street and get out at Stop 34 right outside the pub. It’s a very warm and welcoming venue with good food and drinks.
Thabani Tshuma performing ‘Newton’s Apple,’ which received an honourable mention at The 2018 Melbourne Spoken Word Prize.
Thabani Tshuma was born and raised in Zimbabwe but has been globe-hopping for the greater part of the last decade and as such, considers himself somewhat of a cultural nomad. Whilst writing for as long as he can remember, he’s only actively engaged in the Melbourne Spoken word scene this past year. Thabani’s poetry is an aperture through which he views his world and the way he interacts in relation to others. Thabani studies journalism with the aspiration of immortalizing himself by leaving a dent in the literary world.
Rhiann Isaacs performing ‘Black on Both Sides,’ which received an honourable mention at The 2018 Melbourne Spoken Word Prize.
Rhiann Isaacs is an outspoken Afro-Guyanese poet that has nurtured a love for words and storytelling from a young age. Rhiann’s pieces are explorative narratives that mainly centre around identity, Pan-African issues and mental health. As a rising artist, she brings energy and passion to the stage as she treats each poem as living art pieces that deserve to take up space. Expect transparency and straight forward expression from beginning to end.
