Stand Up for Poetry
Poet Advisors to help shape 2021 Stand up for Poetry regional poetry program.
Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland and Port Stephens Libraries are joining forces again in 2021 to present an exciting regional poetry program for emerging and more experienced poets.
We are calling for expressions of interest from Hunter based poets to help shape the 2021 poetry program. One representative from each of the participating Local Government Areas (Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland and Port Stephens) will be selected.
The role involves attending one-hour meetings during 2021 to contribute to program planning (June) and evaluation (November). Attendance can be in person or online. The payment is $150 ex gst for the two sessions.
We are looking for people with great ideas, poetry writing and/or performance experience, and the ability to work as part of a team. The selection will also be informed by our commitment to diversity and inclusion, and we encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from culturally diverse backgrounds and people with disability to apply.
