The Kurilpa Poets celebrate the passing of May

with our very own “Ladies Day” where we will be focusing

on the Femme side of Poetry,

and featuring the talents of the “Kurilpa Water-Rat-ettes

as the Women of Kurilpa Poets take centre stage

with words of wisdom and wit.

Don’t worry boys! There’ll still be our traditional Open Mic Sessions

where we won’t discriminate. As always Open Mic readers are free to read

on whatever subject they choose, but if you’ve got material suitable for the occasion that would be real cool.


“PHOEBE & NEIL” emerge from the time rift

Mystery Musicians for this month are, the sweet acoustic duo;

Phoebe & Neil.

They were scheduled to play last month but alas were

caught in a time rift and hurtled a month into the Future.

Now we will finally catch up with them in the same space/time continuum

and we look forward to their unfortunately delayed debut.

Entry this month is Free for Kurilpa members and

a mere $2 for everyone else.

And as always we ask the community-minded to bring a plate,

or a packet or a bottle of something to contribute to the Feast.

*food for the people help yourself

I should add at this point, that each month I am overcome

by the generosity of the people who bring such wonderful food

to our gatherings, often cooking tasty treats themselves at home

to share with we hungry poets. (Shane, I’m looking at that humus of yours)

Friends, I thank you.


We’re at the same venue as last month,

West End Community House, 4 Norfolk Road.

WEC House is close to bus routes 196 & 199 (stop5)

Sasha C profile  

The Gold Coast is noted most for its Beaches, Bling and Bikers, but it is also the home of this months Feature Poet, the ever dapper and debonair, Mr Sasha Čuha. A noted performer & poet in clubs and bars and dives of todays Poetry scene, Sasha

wields a mean paint brush as well, and will be graciously exhibiting a selection of his artistic works on this occasion for our delectation and delight.

Sasha is one of the youngest Kurilpa Poets and surely one of the most multi-talented.

Not only is he a poet and painter but actor as well, having made numerous appearances on stage and screen,

including a stretch as a Witch in Macbeth and a leading role in a recent production of the Glass Menagerie. Sash further likes to stretch the envelope by doing stunt-work in his quieter moments! So come along November 24th and watch him crash-test the Arts!
