Change of Venue for Illawarra Breakfast Poets

Post by Shelley Hansen » Fri May 25, 2018 8:40 am

The following information has been received from Zondrae King ...

Illawarra Breakfast Poets move

We would like to advise that : ILLAWARRA BREAKFAST POETS, who have been meeting at the Coniston hall for the past 12 years - have moved. We now meet at 7 am every Wednesday in the boardroom of the new Marco Polo Care facility , 11 Watergum Way, Woonona, NSW 2517

Everyone is welcome. While we prefer to write poetry with rhyme and metre, we are delighted to hear other styles. We are given a new topic each week and read or recite our poems in competition for the DPA (Distinguished Poet's Award). A newcomer has as much chance of taking this hand made hand engraved wooden trophy home as one of the original members who were present that February morning 12 years ago.

It is around the table, secret vote. We contribute a small amount to cover our coffee tea milk biscuits etc. During this year there has been an average of 12 members every week.

We have produced some exciting writing and performers for example = two of our foundation members who will be well known by festival goers over the years are Zondrae King and Ken Potter. Ella Edwards also has been popping up now and again and in recent years Ralph Scrivens was a regular, Sorry to say he has moved away from the Illawarra but will still be performing. Any enquiries to Zondrae 0242837061 or Ken Potter 0417707879.
