The Queensland Poetry Festival hits our city in August with a plethora of poems, spoken word and comedy. Breaking us out of our everyday monotony with the impact of Anisa Nandaula’s words, the festival this year has the theme of Distant Voices. Voices from across the globe cut through the strata of society to highlight social issues from racism to inequality.
Local poet David Stavanger has capped a breakout year by winning the Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize at the Queensland Poetry Festival.
