The Queensland Poetry Festival (QPF) begins today with a little help from a QUT partnership giving poetry students the chance to get up close to Australian greats including Jennifer Maiden, Bronwyn Lea, David Musgrave, Maxine Beneba Clarke, Tony Birch and QUT alumna Ellen van Neerven, as well as international guests such as Mark Doty and Joy Harjo.
Joining them will be internationally acclaimed poet and QUT creative writing lecturer Sarah Holland-Batt, winner of the poetry category of the Prime Minister’s Literary Awards 2016.
“QUT is delighted to be supporting several key events, including a number of readings, and other sessions like an in-conversation with Jennifer Maiden, one of Australia’s most significant living poets, on Sunday,” said Ms Holland-Batt, who will read from her book The Hazards at a literary cabaret at the Judith Wright Centre tomorrow night.
“We are also hosting a poetry edition of the QUT Literary Salon during the festival. Seven exciting QUT poets will be reading at the Institute of Modern Art (IMA) this Friday, which will be an exciting showcase of young and emerging poets.”
Ms Holland-Batt said the QUT partnership provided a priceless opportunity for creative writing students.
“We have had five of our students working as interns in the lead up to the QPF while a further 12 poetry students are volunteering over the course of the festival weekend,” she said.
“It’s of great mutual benefit. The QPF organisers have told us the interns have been invaluable to them, and the students enjoy the experience of meeting and hearing poets read up close. It’s a fantastic real world experience for them.”
Other festival highlights include a Viral Verse event featuring three leading lights of the online and social media poetry revolution: Button Poetry’s Co-Founder and two-time National Poetry Slam champion Sierra De Mulder (USA); award-winning NZ poet Hera Lindsay Bird; and acclaimed USA author Patricia Lockwood, dubbed by Rolling Stone as ‘The poet Laureate of Twitter.’
