Verses Poets in Residence

On almost any day of the week, you can find a poet in residence at participating cafes across Maitland.

The poets in residence are part of Verses, an initiative of Maitland City Council’s Cultural Plan. Connecting people with poetry, the Verses program is a wonderful opportunity to create, share, enjoy and celebrate poetry in our community.

Poetry is one of the most treasured forms of creative expression. Practised throughout history – in every culture and on every continent – poetry remains more vital than ever as a way to share what it means to live in this skin, in this world, in this time.
