In a poetryfest kind of week I went to the Melbourne launch of ‘Blue Dog’ the flagship magazine of the Poetry Australia Foundation last night in Melbourne. It was a good ol style poetry evening down to the plastic cups and the red wine, but the wine was bottle quality and the poetry was quality too. It was good to catch up with lots of people such as Alex Skovron, Connie Barber, Philip Salom, Garth Madsen (who I’d just me the day before), John West, Kris Hemensley, Ron Pretty and lots of others. The Melbourne Poets people weren’t that happy with my launch clashing with their reading night but we parted amicably enough!
