Traversing the Boundaries

Newcastle poet Gillian Swain, author of ‘My skin its own sky’ details intimate, familiar worlds combining past and present. Carl Walsh navigates the topography of history, family and loss, reading from his debut collection ‘Tarp Green Light’. Alicia Sometimes, author of ‘Stellar Atmospheres’, turns her reflective gaze to the astronomical, and legendary Melbourne anarchist poet TT.O. brings his inner urban perspective and traverses the boundaries of the unconventional.

Poets: TT.O., Gillian Swain, Carl Walsh & Alicia Sometimes
