Poetry Winter Warmers #2

Carlton, Woiwurrung Country, 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053

Join us for a tall glass of red and escape the cold with a showcase of award-winning poets reading their most recent works.

From stanza to slam to sonnet, you’ll be transported through the rambunctious and politically charged world of contemporary Australian poetry. Expect clicks. Expect claps. Expect cheers. Curated by Melbourne’s own Tim Loveday.

Grace Yee is a poet, writer and researcher based in Melbourne, Australia. She is the author of Chinese Fish, winner of the Victorian Prize for Literature, the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Poetry, and the Mary and Peter Biggs Award for Poetry at the Ockham New Zealand Book Awards, in 2024.

Thabani Tshuma is a multi-award-winning Zimbabwean writer and performance poet. His work can be found in publications such as Dichotomi magazine, Next in Colour, CUBBY ART, Cordite Poetry Review, and ABC ArtWorks’ SLAMMED segment.

Caitlin Farrugia is a dark comedy writer fascinated by people’s choices, behaviours and everyday suffering as well as intergenerational everything and absurdism. Search Histories is her debut collection of short stories.
