(and Brisbane Poetry in general).

The time is nigh once again for the fabled

Kurilpa Poetry Cup

2018 kURILPA pOETRY cUP GLOW

The previous year’s cup, (rumoured to hold mystical powers)…

 

Stay tuned, gentlefolk, as the final details for this noble tradition of the spoken word are even now taking shape. An esteemed guest poet will shortly be

hunted

 

corralled

invited to act as judge for the day’s contest, which will see entrants competing not only for the fabulous Kurilpa Cup itself, but also for the associated subsidiary prizes traditionally presented to the winner, these being;

a jug of wine, a loaf of bread and a book of verse.

There will also be some cash and some handsome certificates presented not just to the Winner but to the Runners Up to commemorate their Triumph, and indeed there will be a general grab bag of prizes to be presented, as whim and fancy dictates, to competing poets on the day.

So get ready, Brisbane! Gird your loins, sharpen your teeth and bring your bitter words! Bring your sweet sonnets! Bring your sarcastic satires!

Bring your sonorous Odes!

MYSTERY MUSO QPapaYandi

KURILPA POETS 30th OCTOBER GIG UPDATE;

Presenting this months Mystery Musician,

Q-PapaYandi

qpapyandi

Is QPapaYandi really the son of a preacher man?

The lab reports were inconclusive, but nonetheless, this months Mystery Musician proudly claims the Reverend Hellfire as his Spiritual Father and fondly recalls their musical collaboration together on his first recording project, over 16 years ago.

After a long creative hiatus QPY has again picked up his sword and shield (and of course, his guitar) to fight the good fight for Love and Music!

Accordingly, this Musical Vagabond of the Heart can be found performing with the fabulous Whoopee-Do Crew, who appear regularly at West Ends’ Peoples Park and at West End and Gailes Community House events.

Q-Papa-Yandi has also been a regular reader this year at the Kurilpa Poets’ Open Mic sessions, where he has often impressed the crowd with his free flowing improvisational rap/poems. Now he makes his first solo musical appearance for the Water Rats. So come listen to his licks, tap your toes to his tunes and celebrate the musical return of this prodigal son to the fold.

In the meantime, here’s a sample of his stuff. Check it out.

FEELTHY PICTURES??

jap-print

In breaking news Kurilpa’s Visual Arts Director, Shane K, has announced that the theme of this months VIRTUAL GALLERY will be the gorgeous world of traditional

JAPANESE PRINTS

“Erotic Japanese prints?” we asked hopefully.

Our enigmatic and erudite Arts Director merely sniffed.

“It will all be very tasteful,” he assured us.

We look forward eagerly to this aesthetic experience.
