Poetry is the finger food of life

What do you call a bunch of poets? A party of poets? A flagon of poets? A rhyme of poets? A book of poets?

The Live Poets will celebrate their umpteenth end-of-year poetic bash with the annual Poets Banquet at the Rous Hotel in Lismore next Wednesday, December 19. This is the great coming together gathering for the years feature poets, slam winners and the annual Cup winner, together with long-time regular and visiting writers.

It is traditionally an enjoyable night with many poetic voices heard, the odd bottle of red drunk, and, of course, the poets supper provided during the interval.

Live Poets will then take a break until February. Entry is $6/4.
