Jane Cornes has kept alive the Walking On Water literary readings - and this week it opens at a new venue. Not only is it difficult to find such a venue in Perth, but when you find it it can be hard to find such a venue in Perth !!
I'll let Jane's latest email tell you the story:
Hope to see you there. Don¹t forget: Monday 5 June, 7.30 sharp. $5 waged/ $3
unwaged; open readings; three nice invited guests (poet piano accordionist
ross bolleter/musician simon nield/novelist felicity young).
Also we'll supply tea and coffee but feel free to bring drinks.
Ahhh, the mud map refuses to be exposed in this medium. I'll hunt up a description ...
Here it is, courtesy of Jane Cornes:
WOW AT THE LANEWAY, PERTH CITY, MONDAY 4 JUNE 2006, 7.30-10pm
PLUSThree fantastic performers:
Ross is perhaps best known for his work with ruined pianos, which he rescues
and then plays. Tonight, however, he'll be sharing some of his poetry and
playing the piano accordion. Very exciting.
Simon is one of my [JC's] favourite guitarists. He is a well-travelled performer
and an accomplished songwriter. Simon will share some of his original music
Our emerging writer is Felicity Young, a fine local writer who will read
from work in progress.
WOW's NEW HOME is in the city, near the corner of Murray and Pier streets.
It's an easy place to find but a difficult one to explain, so bear with me.
From the corner of Pier and Murray, walk towards the city on Murray. To your
right, opposite Miss Maud's, there's a laneway on which runs down to
There's a florist on one corner of the laneway and the Pier Street carpark
on the other. Just down the laneway a little is the Ambar nightclub. Walk
down past the nightclub until you come to the blue building on the left, no.
WOW is on the first floor, in a custom-built theatre with black curtains.
All very gothic and lovely.
Coffee and tea provided, but please feel free to bring nibbles and drinks
(and something to drink from).
We'll start at 7.30 sharp, with the usual open readers first.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
