BY PIPPA HENNESSEY
@ VOL 2 ON JUN 20, 2014

Her tendency (even though she always hated the stuff) is towards writing poetry. She is a member of Nottingham Writers’ Studio, where she is on the board as the Project Delivery Coordinator and is the Secretary of the Nottingham Poetry Society. I’m on the steering committees for theNottingham Festival of Words and the Beeston Poets.

Sing it out loud!

BY CHAHIRA NOUIRA
@ VOL 7 ON MAY 09, 2017

When singing to win a TV show or to be the lead singer in the trendiest band in town has become the norm, we seem to have forgotten that singing is more than just that. Sharing the gift of singing across genres, countries and cultures goes beyond just a performance on stage. it´s about connecting, sharing and learning.

Chahira Nouira shares the story of how songs and singing has led her through life and helped her find a place whereever she goes.

A poetic vision - the Sunshine Coast poetry trail

BY JUDITH BANDIDT
@ VOL 25 ON FEB 28, 2018

The Sunshine Coast Pente Poets (including Judith Bandidt, Deanne Lister and Lyn Browne) set off on a mission to bring poetry to the people by making it accessible within the local environment. The first year of their grassroots community project saw the poets investigate a variety of Sunshine Coast locations from 'hinterland to headland', exploring innovative ways of embedding poetry in natural, and built environments and writing about what they discovered. A cross-arts sculptural approach has since been used linking the visual arts with the literary arts through the creation of public art pieces with poetry as an intrinsic element.  

The Hinterland Poetry Trail took shape during 2016 and 2017 at three sites. Inspiration for both poetry and sculptures was drawn from the history, heritage and unique environments of the three locations.

An Experiment in Creativity

BY DAGMAR STANSOVA
@ VOL 20 ON SEP 14, 2018

As a screenwriter, poet and script doctor Dagmar Stansova wanted to improve her writing, to free up her mind and she thought a great way to do that would be to do something about which she has no preconceived notions or training. Dagmar chose painting. She will share twenty paintings and one of the poems that came out of her Experiment In Creativity. Her hope is to inspire others to do something they’ve never done before. The poem is called “Laundry Day” in memory of her father.
