Poetry @ Griffith City Library
"There was recently a poetry event at the Leeton Library, and it was great to see a really positive response from the attendees. Afterwards we had a number of enquiries as to whether there would be another poetry event in the future." (Derek Motion, Executive Officer, Western Riverina Arts)
This event will feature Nathanael O’Reilly, visiting writer-in-residence from the Booranga Writers’ Centre, but will also give an opportunity for two new poets from Griffith to showcase their work – Mary Catanzariti and Sharni Montgomery.
"Writing is often a solitary pursuit and so it is important that writers are sometimes given the chance to present their work publicly, and to engage with readers. It is also a great confidence boost for emerging regional writers to be able to present their work alongside more experienced writers." (Derek Motion, Executive Officer, Western Riverina Arts)
