Join us for a groovy evening of retro dishes and poetry readings from our Established Writer-in-Residence, Les Wicks.
For 40 years Les has been a substantial figure in the Australian literary community. He has been a guest at most of the nation’s literary festivals, toured widely and been published in over 350 different newspapers, anthologies and magazines across 29 countries in 14 languages. Equally well known is his work as a publisher and editor. Most people will remember Artransit which put poetry and art into Sydney and Newcastle buses but that is just one of dozens of similar roles: some predictable like literary magazines while others range as far afield as publishing a poem on the surface of a river. The most recent publications are Guide to Sydney Rivers & To End All Wars (P&W, 2018). He has judged many prizes.http://leswicks.tripod.com/lw.htm
