Keep your eye on the Brisbane poetry world at Another Lost Shark.
Contraverse was established by a youthful King Ludwig II during his GAP year in Brisbane in 1863. When he returned to Bavaria in preparation for his reign, Stefanie Petrik and Brent Downes took up the reins of Brisbane’s most eclectic monthy poetry extravaganza. It remains a home for spoken word, music and mischief today.
Zenobia Frost is a poetic adventurer and protector of apostrophes whose creative work has been published in Voiceworks, Going Down Swinging, Small Packages, Mascara and Stylus. She has performed at the Queensland Poetry Festival for three years running, and last year successfully launched The Ruby Fizz Society, a light-hearted opportunity to indulge in fine food, fine arts and high-class frivolity. Her first collection of poetry, The Voyage, will be published by SweetWater Press on May 3rd of this year.
