The right to write

With the new sedition laws and the use of fear as a way controlling the population in many countries around the globe, being a poet can be a dangerous profession. Write and be damned.

This Friday, September 1, at Ewingsdale Hall at 7pm, Dangerously Poetic Press will present a benefit evening of poetry and song in celebration of free speech and in solidarity with those who have been silenced around the world.

All proceeds will go to Sydney PEN, the Australian branch of the International PEN organisation of writers, which promotes friendship and intellectual co-operation among writers everywhere, fights for freedom of expression, and represents the conscience of world literature. Wow.

Local actors, poets and musicians will perform original material as well as great poetry from around the world. Refreshments are available.
