Poetry books on display at the National Library Bookshop

Do you have a poem that moves you or brings you joy? Join us for an informal, online Friends Member-generated poetry evening where you can contribute, enjoy, discover and discuss other members’ favourite poems. 

If you’d like to share your poem on the night, we will have 5 sessions available on a 'first come, first served' basis, with 5-10 minutes available to introduce and read your poem. There will be discussion time available after the readings. Please email friends@nla.gov.au to submit your poem. As we have members of all ages, please ensure your poem contains no expletives or explicit content. 

Bring your own happy-hour beverage, log in to your Zoom account and join your Friends community for this informal get-together. A zoom link will be sent you the day before the event.

This event is for Friends Members only and is free of charge, though registrations are essential. Would you like to become a member? Join now.
