Announcing that, yes, it’s time for;
KURILPA POETRY CUP
Sunday, 26th February, 2017
at the olde Croquet Club
91 Cordelia Street, West End.
The Virtual Gallery!
Free Food & Refreshments!
And Special Feature Poet
And so as the esteemed Kurilpa Poetry Cup stumbles into it’s 6th year, it finds itself in danger of becoming a local Institution! But we shall do our best to ignore the encroaching ravages of Respectability and console ourselves with the thought that most of our Poets belong in some sort of Institution anyway.
We’re proud to have 2-time Cup winner
graciously agree to act as Judge, Jury, and Executioner for the Kurilpa Poetry Cup this year.
Cam, of course, will also be our Feature Poet for the occasion, as it’s become a Kurilpa Cup tradition
(or perhaps convention) that the presiding Judge also appears that day as Feature Poet, giving aspiring new poets an opportunity to learn from the Best, and we always try to have the most Inspirational Poets available to judge the Cup (hence recent Judges include Robin Archibold, David Stavanger
and David Hallett)
Besides we feel it only fair to give our Judges an opportunity to show they can Walk the Walk as well as Talking the Talk, lest there be doubters or mockers. But doubt not! Globe-trotting Cam Logan is up there with the best of them. Check out his recent experimental work as FREE LUNA
So come one come all. Bring your best poems and join the fray, or come to listen and enjoy the day!
KURILPA POETRY CUP GUIDELINES
The details are pretty much as always;
*Sign up is from 1.45.

*A number of finalists will be selected to go on to the final round, so have at least 2 two poems prepared.
*The Cup is free to enter.
*You can use props or musical instruments or assistants.
*There is not usually a time limit, but if there are a large number of entrants we may have to ration out reading time on the day. We therefore advise keeping yr poems under 4 minutes.
The Winning Poet will be showered with prizes, receiving;
An elegant, repurposed Trophy,
A handsome certificate suitable for framing or lining the budgie cage,
$50 in cash,
and of course, the traditional
