WELCOME TO THE LUNA VERSE..
For our Poetic Theme this month we Minions of the Moon will be delving deep into the Dark Side of the Psyche in celebration of the Celestial Mistress of all Pagan Poets,
the white Goddess herself, the Lady Diana. See our Poetic Prophets of the Word enter trance-like states to speak in Tongues and Teeth, seeking
a Luna-versal Language in which to worship their Muse! Bring your own inspired love poems to the Moon
or Lunatick Limmericks to share with the Water Rats and Friends on Sunday 29th October.
Our Feature Poet for October is Leo Porter, a talented young Brisbane based poet, who disguises his involvement in the seedy world of Performance Poetry by masquerading as a humble, second-year Law and Creative Writing student at QUT. But behind this flimsy facade of normality he has already been published in a variety of local zines, and dreams (as we all do-ed.)-of getting his work published in larger magazines and journals.
As well as appearing regularly at Ruckus Slam Open Mic sessions, Leo was also an intern at the 2017 Queensland Poetry Festival and had the opportunity to appear at the QUT literary salon, delivering an impressive performance at that event. He will also be featuring later in this year at the Digital Writers’ Festival in November.
In the meantime, check out this clip of his appearance at the QUT Literary Salon.
MYSTERY MUSICIAN OF THE MONTH
Yes the inimitable Cam Logan returns, this time manifesting in his musical mode as FREE LUNA, the Maestro of the Moody Melody, the Harbinger of the Haunting Harmonic and the King of the ant-infested Keyboards! In his guise as FREE LUNA, this Vocalist Versifier most Vociferous,
presents a post-eclectic mix of rhyme and rhythm most sublime. FREE LUNA appears alas far too infrequently, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience Cam’s unique musical vision.
Up on the Virtual Gallery our Unsuspected Artist this month is the 20th Century American realist painter and influential printmaker, Edward Hopper, best known perhaps for his iconic Nighthawks in a Diner. Art Guru Shane K will explain in detail.
So stop mooning around the house like a lonely Loon,
escape the Tyranny of the Tides and enter the magickal Luna Verse of
REVEREND HELLFIRE and the KURILPA POETS,
2pm, Sunday October 29th
