Panel: Feminism in Poetry - What it’s like being a woman who can speak

Chaired by Candy Royalle, this panel brings together three female poets, from a cross section of the discipline (performance poet, page poet and experimental poet) to discuss their experiences as creators. What have been their greatest challenges, how have they fought back against the misogyny they’ve experienced in the poetry world, what changes would they like to see and how are they helping other more inexperienced female poets move through what can often still feel like a male dominated industry?

Hosted by: Candy Royalle

Featuring: Gabrielle Journey Jones, Randa Abdel-Fattah and Sarah Anne Connor

Tickets: $10 / $7 Concession

The Science of Communication

Are you having the impact you want to have with your words? As a creative we are all searching for the most effective and emotionally powerful way to tell a story and, more importantly, have it heard. In this workshop we take the time to study what it takes to move people with our story in our presentations, our poems or our conversations. Participants will gain a deeper knowledge of what it takes to effectively communicate a message.
