Michelle Leber OCTOBER 24th
AT THE DAN
Michelle Leber was born in Melbourne and raised by Slovenian emigrants. She first started performing her work 10 years ago, but has been around the Melbourne poetry scene for nearly 30 years. She developed her poetry ear, listening to poets, before she had the nerve to recite any of her own work. With parenting and her professional life offering less demands these days, she is now able to focus more on her writing. Over the last 5 years, she has had two poetry collections published – the latest, The Yellow Emperor – an imagined biography of China’s first emperor. Michelle is currently working on a new series of work based on women born in the 19th century who contributed to natural history, the arts and sciences in Australia. She is more interested in writing non-fiction poetry – poetry based on other individuals other than herself – although there are some exceptions.
