Perth Poetry Club and WA Poetry Slam Heats

This Saturday, 15th October, Perth Poetry Club presents poets DENNIS GREENE and TRICIA KELLY for your entertainment. Come on down to the Moon Cafe, 323 William Street, Northbridge, between 2 and 4 pm for an afternoon of words that will touch, inspire and amaze you. With open mic and professional sound as always.

Dennis Greene lives in Perth, Western Australia. His work has appeared in Unfamiliar Tides, Empowa issue one, Empowa issue two (in which he was the featured poet), Westerly, Inside Out , and Blast Magazine. His online credits include Pogonup, Numbat, Comrades, MiPo, Ironbark, and Oracular Tree, among others. In 2000 he was invited to the US to edit Voices from the Parking Lot on behalf of the Parkinson Alliance.

Tricia Kelly is new to this business and hasn't decided on a stage name yet. She fell in love with the syllables of 'Eevie Li' but dropped that idea for fear of being thought of as an evil witch.
