Scene briefs

Over the past 18 years the Live Poets shows have mostly featured the original poetry of the region's poets. Now, for the first time the show on Wednesday, September 16, at the Rous Hotel will feature a night of poetry 'covers' of other writers.

The evening will also feature two of the region's top performing poets - Robin 'Archie' Archbold and poet/singer Vasudha.

Original poems will be included but poets are encouraged to also present the works of other writers. For more information phone David on 6688 6485.
