Poet Jo Thorpe reads today - do come!

I want to cast back to the sandspit at noon,
how I stood on its bright neck, tide muscling in,
its heedless pulse finding every scooped-out
glyph and groove ...

Extract from Inlet by Jo Thorpe in In/let (Steele Roberts 2010)

Come and hear
Poet Jo Thorpe

A dancer , Jo’s poems ‘dance’ in their delicious language, musicality and themes. I love her work - its texture, its sensuousness, its joyousness - and am 'choreographing' the event which is TODAY:

Sunday July 24, 4.30 pm- 6.15 pm
Rona Gallery 151 Muritai Rd Eastbourne. Refreshments. Koha: $5 
Starts with an ‘Open Mic’ for local writers (we have half a dozen of them lined up including Manny Garcia and John Horrocks.) 

Extract from Hunt the Slipper by Jo Thorpe

recalling a tale of that chaste ballerina
stopped by a highwayman wanting
not gold, but demanding she dance
on her black panther skins
spread out on the scintillant snow ...

One more WRITERS ON SUNDAY event: August 28 - Peter Walker historical fiction
