Let’s Talk Children’s Poetry! (a Paper Bird Fellowship Evening)

If you follow me on social media, you might already know that I finished 2019 on a high note with a second place in Jackie Hosking’s rhyming poetry competition. The end of 2019 also heralded the end of my Paper Bird Fellowship. I was a Poet-in-Residence at Paper Bird for Term 4, and during my residency I was working on my children’s poetry collection, Rules for Sneezing.

Which leads me to this exciting news:

A Paper Bird Fellowship Evening: Let’s Talk Poetry!

Wed 22 January 2020 6 pm to 7.30 pm Come along to hear Sally Murphy and Rebecca Newman in Conversation at Paper Bird Fremantle. The evening will also include poetry readings by Sally and Rebecca.

I will be joining award-winning writer and children’s poet Sally Murphy at Paper Bird to talk about children’s poetry! And during the evening you can hear us read some of our own poetry. We’d love to see you there.

6 pm – 7.30 pm Wednesday 22 January 2020

    All the best Rebecca, the residency and the readings with Sally sound wonderful- wish I was closer! Hope it goes well and your collection finds a publisher!
