How does magic infuse itself into the written word and into the lives of writers? What are the connections between poetic and magical practices? Hear poems from a line-up of artists weaving their practices of writing and magic together.

Australian Poetry acknowledges the inspiration of Ignota Books and its ground-breaking book SPELLS—21st-Century Occult Poetry (2018). Poetry from the collection will be read at the event.
