“A Loaf of Bread, A Jug of Wine and a Book of Verse!”
What’s this, you say? An old shopping list found in Judith Wright’s pocket?
NO Friends! It’s time for
THE 2015 KURILPA POETRY CUP!
Yes, on Sunday 22nd February, 2015, starting at 2pm,
the highly esteemed Kurilpa Poetry Cup
will be held once more.
The prize for First Place includes,
as well as the traditional loaf of bread, jug of wine
and book of verse, the sum of $50 in unmarked bills,
a handsome certificate suitable for framing, the esteem of your peers and of course, the fabulous Kurilpa Cup itself.
We are also proud to announce that our Feature Poet for February and also Honourary Judge for the Cup,
will be non-other than respected local Uber-poet,
And a special Mystery Musician is waiting in the wings,
Surely a special occasion is in the making. But there is one Fly in our ointment..
*CUP VENUE CHANGE*
Please note that the Kurilpa Cup will not be held at
our regular venue this year.
Due to long awaited renovations to the old Croquet Club
in Musgrave Park finally commencing, the Kurilpa Poets will be
“Cultural Couch Surfers” for the next few months,
and thus popping up in strange and unexpected places.
(For example we will be appearing at the Kurilpa Hall
for our 29th March show.)
Discussions are currently being conducted with a number of suitable local venues and we expect to be able to confirm our
location for the Kurilpa Cup on 22nd February
before the end of this week.
In the meantime; Polish those Poems!
More details will be appearing in the Water-Rat Gazette
in coming days. Stay tuned..
