Like writer's block and the opposite of writer's block, opportunities to read seem to come and go at irregular intervals. I am fortunate enough to have the chance to read at three different events in the next two weeks.
This Wednesday, 22 August at 7 pm, I will be reading a short story at Scissors Paper Pen's new monthly event at Smith's Alternative Bookshop: Something Else. The story, titled You never quite reach the drums in the distance, is the first short story I have finished in around ten years. I am excited.
My next gig is at Wollongong's new monthly poetry slam at Yours and Owls, on Saturday 25 August at 6 pm. I will be the feature poet, performing around 30 minutes of my old and new stuff.
My east coast tour ends at the regular Traverse Poetry Slam at The Front in Lyneham, on Friday 31 August at 8 pm. Again I will feature, with a shorter set.
I love performing.
