Last Drinks at At the Gates

At the Gates
At the Gates @ Smith’s Alternative

Fresh from a terrific run at Best of Crash Test last month, my short play Last Drinks will be doing an encore performance as part of At the Gates, a variety show taking place at Smith’s Alternative on 9 July 2016.

At the Gates will showcase a slew of Canberra talent including performance poets, theatre folk and musicians. Performers include Rob Defries, Helen Way, Phillip Meddows, Cara Irvine, John Lombard, Ghost Noises, Barbi Jones, Dylan Hekimian, The Faumuis, and Katherine Berry. The event has been organised and will be hosted by the wonderful Brendan Kelly.

Apart from being a great excuse to indulge in some creativity, At the Gates also aims to raise funds and awareness for the plight of refugees around the world. All proceeds will be donated to Amnesty International.

The show kicks off at 4pm. Entry is $10.


Grapple Annual Canberra Launch

Grapple Publishing’s new calendar-based anthology, The Grapple Annual, will have its Canberra launch on Friday 28 November at Smith’s Alternative (76 Alinga Street, Canberra) from 6pm.

I have three new poems included in the anthology, along with a bunch of other talented new and emerging writers.

The evening will include words from Eleanor Malbon, Andrew Galan, Raphael Kabo, Monica Carroll, as well as music from Hannah Blackburn and Paul Heslin.

If you’re in Canberra you should definitely come check it out. Details can be found on the launches’ Facebook event page.
