Writer Under the Influence - November

Wednesday November 1st 7.30-9.30pm

Our writer for November is renowned Australian poet Alan Wearne. 

Alan has been part of the Australian poetry scene for 50 years, known principally for his verse novels and verse narratives, and his satiric and not-so-light light verse

After eighteen years teaching at the University of Wollongong, where he founded the Grand Parade Poets publishing outfit (12 volumes to date) he has now returned to Melbourne.

His three most recent volumes are with Giramondo: The Australian Popular Songbook (2008), Prepare The Cabin For Landing (2012), and These Things Are Real (2017).
