Caroline Reid: FREE Author Event hosted by Underground Writers

I'm so pleased to announce my first live author event! And it's FREE. Hosted by Underground Writers, it will be broadcast on Underground Writers YouTube channel this Sunday May 31st at 3.30pm - 4.30pm local Adelaide time. (That's 4pm for the east coast, and 2pm for the west coast of Australia)

During the event you can ask questions about SIARAD, my new collection of poetry and prose. If you'd like to send me questions prior to the event, you can do that over at EVENTBRITE, where you can also RSVP for the event.

I'll read stories and poems from the book, and talk about what inspired me to write them. I'll also take requests for reading. Have I made it sound oh-so formal? It won't be. I might even wear my pjamas. baha. Full disclosure: I'll be broadcasting from my bedroom.

There will be book giveaways, and if you fancy some audience poetry writing there will definitely be an opportunity for that! I've got some fun & daggy writing prompts planned. You just can't stop the creative writing teacher in me. So bring a willingness to try something new. Or just write the same ole brilliant stuff ;)

Poetry Pod: Stars
There's also a special prize I have never offered before but in the spirit of trying new things, I'm going to give it a go. During the Q&A, Jess Gately, Marketing Manager and Editor at Underground Writers will choose one of the poems you've written from the prompts. If you're the winner I will make you your very own poetry pod, inspired by your poem. Don't know what a poetry pod is? I make them from the burnt ashes of a poetic text mixed with found objects wrapped in yarn.  All the materials I use are recycled/repurposed. See the pic above? That's one I made earlier. They are nice objects to hold. I think of them as small universes of poetry.

So, for your opportunity to have your very own poetry pod or a book giveaway or just to enjoy the conversation and readings, come join me for my first ever online Live Q&A. I'd love to meet you!
