POETS: Do you have the Spirit of the Land?

‘Spirit of the Land’
Submissions are invited on the subject of the ‘Spirit of the Land’, the 3rd in a series of the popular Manly Art Gallery & Museum poetry readings. Twenty poems will be chosen by event curator Les Wicks for live-reading by the authors who will each receive $50.
The Gallery will be hosting an exhibition on the theme LAND (3 November – 3 December)  with selected works by artists who have drawn inspiration from the theme ‘LAND’… as a noun, a verb, a place, an idea, a possibility, a presence, a contested space. Landscape, headland, wasteland, landfill, landmine, landform, landed, etc. The exhibition supports and connects this region’s contemporary artists with the gallery, providing a valuable opportunity to showcase their work and to challenge their art practice through their diverse responses.
Selected poems will have explored this theme. Please advise in which suburb you live.
