Perth Poetry Club Begins - Every Saturday 2-4pm at the Court Hotel

Excited organisers of a fresh weekly poetry reading, Janet Jackson and Helen Child say:

The Perth Poetry Club will be kicking off on Saturday, March 28, from 2-4pm, and every Saturday thereafter, at The Court hotel and restaurant, 50 Beaufort Street, Perth.

This is opposite the museum, just along from the train station, about as central as it gets.

For those with recalcitrant feet: no stairs! - we will meet in the front corner room, on the right as you come in the front door.

Entry is free but donations will be encouraged. We want to be able to pay our guest poets, and there may be some expenses.

Expect a Guest poet each week, plus lots of 3-5 minute open mike slots and some time to chat. Under-18s are allowed in the venue until 8pm but they must be with their parent or guardian.

If you'd like to be included in the reading line-up for the first Poetry Club performance afternoon, email Helen child at: helchild@tpg.com.au

MCs, Helen Child and Janet Jackson say: "It will be a fun and relaxing way to spend a Saturday arvo. It's also a great place to try out that latest poem, or hone your performance skills!

Come and share some poems, and while you're there, enjoy the full bar and restaurant service of The Court to the extent allowed by your wallet and your mood..."
