Poetry Movie: People in Performance

Created by Kenneth Smeaton, recording Melbourne poetry history. In this episode I'm featured, reading what was once my most famous (or notorious!) poem.

A Poet in the Pandemic

Luckily I'm mostly an online poet. Social distancing is not required on social media. All the usual poetry groups and communities are still operating. Currently I'm mostly at  Poets and Storytellers United , for the very good reason that I'm officially its Coordinator these days – albeit with a wonderful, smooth-running, no-fuss team who don't need a lot of coordinating.

Sarah is still doing the hosting, with her usual warmth and efficiency. At any event that she runs, you know instantly that you're among friends.
