We had a small but enthusiatic roll up to last night's Poetry Reading with Jane Williams and Digital Talk by David Reiter. Jane Williams read from her latest book of poetry City of Possibilities. Her work is mostly free verse poetry influenced by the Japanese style Haibun. She read the opening and closing poems in the book as well as one titled “Stars” about what she has learnt from her daughters, another about her mother evoking memories of Tupperware and school lunches and a clever poem about the local CWA shop located next to a tattoo parlour.
David Reiter is a cross-media artist and publisher with several digital works to his credit. He is also Director of Interactive Press, a Brisbane publisher and has released Your ebook survival guide. He spoke about the opportunities for writers to not ony publish books but to consider visual and audio elements as well. He answered many detailed questions from the audience as well as showcasing his own works including the Nullabor Song Cycle.
