The FSP Featured Poets Series has evolved out of the long-running Words@The Wall program that was hosted by the State Library of South Australia for many years. These sessions usually feature two established poets reading an extended collection of their work. This format presents a rare opportunity to hear longer poems or poem sequences from poets at the top of their games.
The program is curated by Jelena Dinic and held in the convivial surrounds of the Halifax Cafe, 187 Halifax Street Adelaide.
In 2016, the program featured:
Jules Leigh Koch & gareth roi jones (June)
Heather Taylor-Johnson, Rachael Mead & Alison Flett (July)
Kathryn Hummel, Mike Ladd & Michael Crane (August)
Stephen Brock & Nathan Curnow (September, abandoned due to storm-induced blackout…)
Ken Bolton & Dominic Symes (October)
Peter Goldsworthy & Jan Owen with singer, Ana Nedeljkovic-Brankovic (November)
