Hello Poetry at The Gods supporters

Please don't ignore 'the prophets in your own country' on Septemer 8 (just on a week away)  featuring three Canberra poets, P.S. Cottier, Melinda Smith and Owen Bullock.

P.S. Cottier arrived in Canberra in 1991. Her recent books include the suite Selection Criteria for Death in Triptych Poets Issue 3 (Blemish Books 2012) and The Stars Like Sand:  Australian Speculative Poetry (edited with Tim Jones) (Interactive Press 2014).

Melinda Smith has published four collections, most recently Drag down to unlock or place an emergency call (Pitt St Poetry 2013). It won the 2014 PMs Literary Award. Her work has been widely anthologised — including multiple times in the Best Australian Poems series. She is currently poetry editor for the Canberra Times.

New Zealander Owen Bullock’s first collection is sometimes the sky isn’t big enough (Steele Roberts 2010). He’s also published two books of haiku and a novella. His editing credits include Kokako and Poetry NZ, along with several anthologies, most recently, Dazzled: The University of Canberra’s Vice-Chancellor’s International Poetry Prize, 2014.
