SMSA Poetry Group

I am very pleased to invite you to attend the Poetry Group that meets once a month at Sydney Mechanics School of Arts (SMSA) to explore the seminal work of some of Australia`s First Nations Poets. 


I have taken care to curate the poetry of First Nations Poets including Oodgeroo, Ali Cobby Eckermann, Alison Whittaker, Maggie Walsh and many more. Some of these Poets I have known personally and have had the honour to have worked with some of them. 


My poetical perspective and choices is informed by the fact that both my maternal grandmothers` and mother were the descendants of First Nations Peoples in North America and South America\Caribbean.


Do join me as your sure to be part of an enjoyable and rewarding night.


There will also be an opportunity to share the poems of your own special First Nations Poets.
