'Poetry In Conversation' is a chance for you to listen to some of Perth’s best poets in an interview format with Robert Wood. These sessions are designed as an introduction and exploration of how poets write, read and talk. They will feature readings of poems as well as the opportunity for you to hear about the poet’s influences, process and work. This will give you the chance to listen to the stories behind the poetry for which they are known. Come along, grab a glass of wine and settle in to hear what our best wordsmiths are up to.

The 'Poetry in Conversation' series will continue with CAITLIN MALING. Caitlin Maling is a WA poet with two collections out through Fremantle Press, the most recent of which, Border Crossing, was published earlier this year. Her first collection Conversations I've Never Had, was shortlisted in the WA Premier Awards and for the Dame Mary Gilmore Award. Individual poems from these collections have won the Val Vallis Award and been shortlisted for the Newcastle Poetry Prize and the Judith Wright Prize. She divides her time between Fremantle, Sydney and Cervantes.

ROBERT WOOD has interned for Overland and Wild Dingo Press, worked for Australian Poetry, edited for Peril and Cordite, been a columnist for Cultural Weekly and is on the faculty of The School of Life. At present he works for the Centre for Stories.
