Clive Palmer to headline Queensland Poetry Festival

Clive Palmer will relive his days as a bard with a public reading of his youthful verse at the Queensland Poetry Festival later this month.

The businessman and federal MP will headline the event alongside renowned poet Les Murray, Quan Yeomans from Regurgitator and Damian Cowell from cult heroes TISM.

Festival co-director Annie Te Whiu said Mr Palmer was on the event's must-have list after he read excerpts from his 1981 book of poetry entitled Dreams, Hopes and Reflections on the ABC program Kitchen Cabinet.
