Sometimes rude, but never crude, good fun and storytelling
Looking for an evening of laughter, wit and wicked word-play? Come along and bring your friends to Poets at the Inn for an entertaining evening of good old-fashioned fun; a revival of the art of storytelling through poetry with five of the state's funniest poets.
Bob Magor - Travelling Bush Poet - tells side splitting stories in rhyming verse
This is the first time nationally acclaimed bush poet, Bob Magor, has performed in the North East. He spends half of his year on a farm in Myponga and the other half reading his hilarious poetry at holiday parks and grey nomad campsites around Queensland and Northern Territory. His books sell by the thousand. It is a rare treat to have this performance poet strut his Aussie stuff in the suburbs!
Exodus by Bob Magors
Bob will be accompanied by the state's naughtiest ladies of women's poetry, Louise Nicholas, Jude Aquilina and Sharon Kernot, along with local lad Ken Vincent, a published novelist and poet.
Jude Aquilina and Louise Nicholas are well known as "WomanSpeak", and have performed together for years. They have published over a dozen poetry collections between them. WomanSpeak was published by Wakefield Press.
Jude and Louise are wicked, witty and brave poets, who explore the secret business of women, from fashion faux pas and medical procedures to intimate secrets and raucous experiences.
Sharon Kernot - joys and jokes of being a modern woman.
Sharon Kernot and Ken Vincent both novelists and poets are rising stars in the literary scene. Their satire and original humour are a delight. Sharon writes about fishing in the world of tiddlers and men, and about the joys and jokes of being a modern woman, while Ken captures everyday people with sharp accuracy, often with irony and sometimes with their pants down!
Sharon is the author of Underground Road, published by Wakefield Press, was short listed in the unpublished Manuscript category of the Adelaide festival Awards in 2010. She has published a collection of short stories, In the Shadows of the Garden and a collection poetry, Washday Pockets.
Ken Vincent - captures everyday people with sharp accuracy.
Ken is the author of several books and is featured in New Voices, an anthology of members of the North Eastern Writers' Inc. and leading poets such as Mike Ladd, Jules Koch, Jude Aquilina and others. Published by Ginninderra Press.
