Public Poetry Picnic at Observatory Hill

The Sydney Poetry Bookers Picnic is a celebration of poetry. The reading event recognises the significance of the coordinators of poetry who organise the regular readings in Sydney and the greater regions of the city. The annual event acknowledges the efforts undertaken throughout the year by the organisers of poetry in forging poetry communities and developing support of the art form. Representatives are invited to attend, speak of the event and read. There is also an open reading section.

Now in its sixth year, the reading will feature three-time winner of the Nimbin World Cup of Poetry and co-founder of Bard Flies, one of Sydney’s first spoken word events, Tug Dumbly as MC. Music will be provided by George Washingmachine, who has been involved in the entertainment industry since last century. He has worked in television, theatre & film.

From the more established events through to the emerging, performative and the competitive such as the Australian Poetry Slam organised by Word Travels, to the underground word-gypsies of Caravan Slam, through to presentations of the Avant-garde in Avant Gaga at Sappho Books Cafe & Bar. Sydney poetry events feature, local, regional, national and international poets and collaborators across a range of different venues, from libraries, galleries, museums to pubs and clubs.
