Hear ye, hear ye, ratbags and misfits of Kurilpa!
(and Brisbane Poetry in general).
The time is nigh once again for the fabled
Kurilpa Poetry Cup
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
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!
