Abstract

I was the second poet to be invited for the 2010 Word Tree Readings at Burrinja Arts Cafe which had established themselves as a place for contemporary Australian poets to perform their works in the 'hills' above Melbourne. The Word Tree/Burrinja readings were innovative in bringing a range of voices and styles into Melbourne poetry circles. Although the readings only lasted a few years (until poet Catherine Bateson moved on), they were well-attended and remain celebrated in 'arts' poetry theatres. I was delighted to be asked and it gave me an opportunity to 'try out' a range of my poems to a cultured, literate audience, themselves a modest but significant of the Australian contemporary poetry scene.
