Small Change Press launch
Tattooing the Surface of the Moon by Sean M. Whelan
Small Change Press – http://www.smallchangepress.com.au – QLD’s independent publisher of poetry, spoken word and lyric chapbooks – is about to launch its final title for 2008, Tattooing the Surface of the Moon by acclaimed Melbourne spoken word artist, Sean M Whelan.
Sean is a writer of poetry, prose, visual poetry and works for performance. His work has been widely published in the likes of Going Down Swinging & the upcoming Best Australian Poems 2008. In 2007 he was a special guest of the Utan Kayu International Literary Biennale in Indonesia and has a strong connection to Brisbane through his feature sets at the QLD Poetry Festival, Love Hate Poetry Racism and his upcoming debut at the Woodford Folk Festival. Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz, New York City Slam Poet Champion, says:
“Haunting, provocative and lavishly surreal, Sean M. Whelan’s latest collection of poetry is a glittering stand out.”
As part of this live launch experience, Sean will be reading from his new book alongside local lass, Zenobia Frost – one of Brisbane’s fine emerging voices and coordinator of the Ruby Fizz Society, and Baron Field – Brisbane’s own alt-country Johnny Cash.
