Poetry Night Featuring Juniper-Mae: Mon Jan 14

Located at Don Eadie's house - 625 Fernhill Road ... (look for the yellow flower indicating his driveway. It's a bit steep if you have difficulty walking.) Featuring performer & poet Juniper-Mae from Victoria.

Juniper-Mae can most often be found raiding roadside beehives for poems, or challenging tide-pools to staring contests. Drawing inspiration from the coast where she grew up, Juniper-Mae finds herself with poetry that is both whimsical and visceral. She aims to bring you at least a little honesty, and at least a little hope.

Bring: Poetry, Potluck Snacks, Hydration & a (financial) Donation for the Mayne Island Food Bank.
6 pm: We gather at Don Eadie’s home (625 Fernhill Road) 6:15pm Poetry Readings Begin (Open Mic*)
7 pm: We take a break & discuss the poetry read
7:30 pm: Juniper-Mae reads a selection of her work
*we probably won’t use a microphone.

Read your own prose, read a piece from your favourite poet, or just enjoy the words and emotions tumbling from those who have chosen to share.... You don't need to have anything memorized, you don't need to confine yourself to a particular style of spoken word (this is not a slam poetry competition).

Readings will begin around 6:15 pm. For further information please contact Kat Ferneyhough kat.ferneyhough@gmail.com.
