|VERSES - POETS IN RESIDENCE|
Can poetry make the world a better place?
To celebrate the power of poetry, local poets are invited to team up with local cafes as part of the VERSES – POETS IN RESIDENCE initiative.
VERSES is an initiative of Maitland City Council’s Cultural Plan connecting poets with local cafes, whereby poets are connected with cafes through a pilot ‘poet in residence’ program. The poet is given space to write, as well as complimentary coffee. In return the poet enriches the cultural life of the cafe through conversations, connections and performances.
Residencies are voluntary and do not include payment.
