The Australian Poetry Centre is seeking poets, in each Australian State or Territory, interested to sit as ‘poet-in-residence’ in a café in their capital city for a period of six months getting free tea or coffee while you write.
Please apply by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with an expression of interest stating:
a) all your contact details
b) what you would get out of being the poet in residence
c) a clear personal objective focussing on what you would like to achieve with your poetry in the six months and
d) a measurable public objective to benefit others, such as being prepared to give a reading at the end of it, or providing the cafe with a poem to display.
Deadlines for applications are Feb 20th, 2009.
For more details see the Australian Poetry Centre website or call the office on (03) 9527 4063.
