I spent yesterady afternoon at the Motley Bauhaus in Fitzroy listening to a fabulous range of poets strutting their stuff at the P-Word Sessions. The P-Word Sessions are a monthly event hosted by Amanada Anastasi and Anthony WP O'Sullivan.
It's a brilliant event. First up is the open mic with a plethora of poets performing profound and poignant pieces (how's that for a bit of alliteration?). Then a break to mingle and bump elbows. After that comes the two featured poets who take us on a deep dive into their creative worlds. Amanda and Anthony always curate a great line up and yesterday was no exception. Alice Allan held us all spellbound with her sonnets and great delivery. And Kevin Brophy took us to the remote Aboriginal community of Mulan, Western Australia and then to Rome with his collections of poetry.
If you live on Melbourne and haven't already been to the P-Word Sessions, make sure you check them out. Thye're on the first Sunday of every month.
