Australian Poetry Centre is 'MAKING SENSE OF IT'

We all have our own perception of life, our own way of engaging with it or experiencing it. We depend on our senses to help us form an impression, understand our surroundings and act accordingly. But no two people experience the same thing. We are all individual. We all have our own unique way of perceiving the world. How do you perceive yours?

The Australian Poetry Centre is running a poetry competition, seeking poems which show us life from a totally unique perspective, from your own sensory experience, allowing others an insight into your distinctive view of the world - how you feel, observe and encounter it.

The top five poems selected will be (with the poets permission) recorded, performed and released on our poetry podcast (in partnership radio station 3RRR), Nothing Rhymes with RRR, and be published on the Australian Poetry Centre’s website. The poet who wins first prize will also receive one free Australian Poetry Centre Membership and the opportunity to read his/her poem at our public event on the night of May 7th, Dreaming in Auslan, at the Wheeler Centre (176 Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne), 7:30pm, where all winners will be announced. If you cannot attend the evening, we can provide a speaker or established poet to read or present your work for you.
