The Wild Women of Poetry!
The shocking photos!
November 4th 2012 the Kurilpa Poets held their infamous “Wild Women of Poetry ” event. Now for the first time we show the shocking photos from this legendary event.
The crowd trickled in to the mandolin melodies of local busker Paula Hackney, this months Mystery Musician. (We first found Paula busking at the corner of Vulture and Boundary street outside the chemist)
First feature poet of the afternoon Theresa Creed electrifyed the audience with the intensity of her performance and words. The Kurilpa Poets are truly honoured to have had her appear on this occasion.
Next up Urban Flower child & fairy goddess of poetry Rachel Dean channeled the spirit of Wonder Woman to deliver a knockout set.
Following Rachel , fellow League of Extraordinary Poets member, the charismatic Arafa Al-Mughairi softly seduced the audience with her revelations of lyrical longing.
Intermission saw the Melbourne bound Stephanie Petriks visual-artpoems sliding across the walls, while the crowd chatted or slipped outside for a smoke.
The OPen Mic session saw some of the chaps get up and have a go,
and some more of the girls..
Meanwhile in the back of the hall..
And a good time was had by all..
