Laurie Axtens and S Sorrensen will feature next Wednesday, February 21, at the first Live Poets! show for the year.

The Live Poets! gig returns to the Rous Hotel in Lismore next Wednesday, February 21, to start its 16th year of wordplay.

In a daring poetic move by MC and organiser David Hallett, the evening will feature The Echos two famous poetic journos, S Sorrensen and Laurie Axtens. Both have contributed some serious and stimulating stanzas to this areas (and the nations) poetry stockpile in the past. Should be fun...

The Live Poets! will, as always, also feature an open slather of open and invited readings, with new and visiting poets welcome.

The show starts around 8pm. Entry is $6/4.

Freebie: The Echo has a double pass to give away to some lucky reader. To go in the draw to win phone 6622 2888 between 10.15 & 10.30am next Monday, February 19, and tell us if S Sorrensen is a) a comedian, b) a writer, c) an emotional cot case or d) all of the above.
