queensland poetry festival Archives - The Creative Issue - News for Creatives
The Queensland Poetry will be returning for its 20th year packed full of film, performance, panels, music, comedy and of course poetry.
If youâ€™re a poet, a performance artist or just a lover of words with a very short attention span, mark the Queensland Poetry Festival down in your diary. Under the new creative management of David Stavanger and Anne-Marie Te Whiu, and with a huge line-up of artists and events, the biggest event in Brisbane poetry is looking better than ever.
Queenslandâ€™s biggest weekend for poetry and the people who write it may still be many months away, but the deadline for submissions is fast approaching. If youâ€™re a poet, spoken word artist or performer wanting to take your work to a larger audience, the Queensland Poetry Festival could be your chance.
The creative industries can sometimes seem a contradiction in terms â€“ projects everywhere, but never a career in sight. TheÂ PathfinderÂ series features interviews with Brisbaneâ€™s leading creative practitioners, trailblazers on the long road from artistic hobby to a professional calling.
