‘Freyberg treads the page with all the notes of Callas at La Scala. His characters are angel boys wrestling with gargoyles, in their cries we hear Chelsea Manning’s lyric of injustice, the stillness of a goanna in the noon sun, and the sound of waves beating at the bodies of our past. A daring collection, wide-eyed with hope and love.’ – Rico Craig Dining at the Edge by Charles Freyberg

Paris Rosemont is a performance poet who delights audiences with a devious undercurrent bubbling just beneath the surface of her calm exterior. Her edgy poetry has been published in eclectic homes, ranging from award-winning literary journals to underground schlock-horror zines!⁠ ⁠ Paris brings her original poetic monologues to life with wicked sass and charm. You’d better buckle up for a wild ride through the kooky imaginings of this mad, bad bitch!⁠ Ladymoon Productions

Poetry came hard and heady – in gaudy costume slam poet Lou Steer played provocatively with prose about the Madonna/whore complex. themusic.com.au
