Poetry Cafe returns to Fingal Bay for poetry readings and open mic

That winter favourite, Poetry Cafe, returns to Fingal Bay On Saturday.

Poetry Cafe aims to showcase the work of poets from near and far, experienced or not, at the open mic event. 

Equally, people can simply sit back and enjoy.

“Poetry is written to be heard,” poet and organsier Dael Allison said last year.

“This is a wonderful chance for first time readers to present their work in a supportive environment, and to hear other poets. And it is free.”

Internationally recognised poet Kit Kelen performed at the first Poetry Cafe, in May 2016. In July 2017, award winning Sydney poet Julie Chevalier was special guest.

This time around it’s, Gillian Swain and Janette Hoppe’s turn. 

Poetry Cafe kicks off 1.30pm, Saturday May 20, at Cellars Cafe in Market St, Fingal Bay.
