A Festival of Poetry, 13–17 September 2018

All events, except workshops, are free, but bookings are essential.

The fourth year of Poetry on the Move, hosted by the International Poetry Studies Institute (IPSI) based within the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research (CCCR), Faculty of Arts and Design, University of Canberra.

This year’s edition, Inhabiting Language, sees over 40 poets and other contributors converging on Canberra for 5 days in mid-September.

The festival will kick off on the 13th of August with a full-day poetry research symposium, and finish in the heart of Civic with a reading by women poets at the Not Very Quiet event.

In between, a variety of local and international poets will participate in readings, panels, discussions and events. We particularly welcome our international poets in residence: Sholeh Wolpe (USA), Keijiro Suga (Japan) and Moira Egan (USA/Italy).

In a change from previous years, most events will take place at our ‘festival hub’, Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres.
