Interesting times indeed, on November 11th, 1975, when a gathering of Adelaide poets took place at the Sim Choon fireworks factory in Union Street, Adelaide. After forty years of regular poetry readings in city, suburban and country areas, thousands of poems published, the occasional controversy and metaphorical firework, Friendly Street Poets remains alive and well, providing both a venue and an audience for poets.
