Poets' corner

Photograph of Poets Corner

Our poets' corner showcase makes use of the large digital sign on the corner of Mounts Bay Road and Hackett Drive, Perth.

This poetry initiative coordinated by Trove with the support from The Cultural Precinct is a place where poets can showcase very short works.

If you are a poet interested in being involved, please email us your submissions for consideration, including 'Poets' Corner' as the email subject.

Poetry submissions can be made throughout the year on an ongoing basis. Submissions should consist of three lines only with 21 characters (including spaces) and a maximum total of 63 characters.

Featured poem in the image is by Brid Phillips.

Current theme - Distress - 20 December 2013

in the meniscus
paper wasp struggles
piercing the membrane

 - Garry De Piazzi

Emotional turmoil
when the silence
can be deafening

 - Penny Gatfield

beating harder now
a thousand cuts
bleed a memory

 - Christopher Branagan

Shame and regret
shadows lurking
upon guilty souls

 - Penny Gatfield
