Well, our August break is over, the Queensland Poetry Festival has come and gone, and the Kurilpa Poets are back in business at the Olde Croquet Club in Musgrave Park.

And to celebrate the Spring, and all things new and blossoming,

we have planned a special showcase of some of the new generation of rising, young Brisbane poets, under the banner,


on Sunday 27th September at 2pm.

The Kurilpa Poets are very excited to be presenting

on this occasion our youngest feature poets ever,

the precociously fabulous LunchBox Poets.

The Lunchboxers are a trio of local High School students,

Morgan Larkin, Hai Xia Wang Pole and Molly Sanders-Dwyer.

They graciously gave the Water-Rat Gazette a short statement of their aims;

“Lunchbox Poets is dedicated to providing a space

for young poets to speak out and be heard.

So far we have organised events for World Poetry Day,

with QPF and Brisbane Square Library, as well as events with Avid Reader

in West End, Visible Ink and The Nest Community Inc.

Lunchbox is made up of three dedicated girls

with a love of poetry and dog photos. ” _

Jem Sparkles is no stranger to Kurilpa,

having been our Mystery Musician a number of times this year.

But we love her so much we have to have her back once more,

and indeed her effervescent warblings should provide the

perfect background vibe for this occasion.

Plus of course the usual Kurilpa Wackiness and Good Vibes,

the fabulously informal Open Mic sessions and much more.

Be sure to attend and don’t forget, we ask the community minded to bring a plate or a packet or a bottle of something nice to add to the Feast.
