MEDIA RELEASE

5th May 2014

Calling All Poets!

Whether you’re a budding poet, or if you’ve got years of experience, there’s a poetry event for you at the Larger than Life arts festival. 

The event’s program includes a limerick competition and a number of Poets’ Corner sessions.

The limerick competition challenges Esperance local’s to write a limerick that has an Esperance and/or Larger than Life theme, reference or content.

Limerick’s are often comical and nonsensical and the event organizers are looking forward to seeing what exciting poems are submitted. Limericks can be sent to David Ford on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or hand delivered to Esperance Community Arts, Museum Village, by 5pm on Wednesday 14 May 2014.

The winning entries will be announced during the first Poets’ Corner session at the festival, 11am on Saturday 17 May.

The Poets’ Corner sessions offer the opportunity for local poets who have written and are willing to present their own poetry, or those who would like to recite published and unpublished poems.

Four poetry sessions will be run over the two day event, at 11am and 4pm on both the Saturday and Sunday.

If you’re a poet and/or poetry present willing to take part in this event, please send your name, contact details and poems to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 5pm on Wednesday 14 May. Poetry presentations should be between two and five minutes in length.
