Wow Wow Wow Receiver

This week, from 11th October, I'm participating in a project called 'Poetic Intervention' at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany, without travelling to Frankfurt. Four poets from different countries or locations will be writing live online at certain times each day. We'll also contribute images. The texts and images will then be compiled and published as Wow Wow Wow Receiver on Friday. It's an experiment in digital writing and publishing. Should be fun.
The project was conceived by Duncan White, from the University of the Arts, London. You can read more about it here.

Last night in Glebe, Sydney - a wonderful reading, hosted by Toby Fitch at Sappho's Books. The poets were Tom Lee, Astrid Lorange, Ella O'Keefe, Tim Wright & Nick Whittock, Oscar Schwartz, Michael Farrell and Duncan Hose. Here are some photos of the readers and a few of the audience.
