Poetry Live Online Presents Daniel Vernon and Elizabeth Morton
Ladies and gentlemen! Staaaaart your engines!!!
It’s Poetry Live tomorrow night and oh gee whizz, don’t I have a treat for you all! The awesome Daniel Vernon as our Guest Musician and the wonderful Liz Morton as the Guest Poet! *dab*
Last week I had so much fun talking to you all on Live Stream! So tomorrow, I’m going to do exactly the same! There may be a drop-out or two, but that’s what makes it exciting! It’ll be boring if it went perfect every time!
I realized that last week I swore a bit too much. Therefore, tomorrow night, I am going to have a swear jar! $10 a swear will go to Red Cross who are doing a fantastic job during the lock down with elderly and disabled folks!!!
Daniel Vernon is going to be up first at 8:00PM with some tunes that’ll make you feel a few things! A graduate of University of Auckland, Daniel studied Drama and Media Studies where he contributed weekly comics, did cover art and design for Craccum and Debate Magazines. He also wrote and directed two plays and started the band Scared of Girls.
He works as a freelancer, digital content creator as well as writing plays, editing videos and creating music in the band, Dartz!
Just like last week, the open mic is open 24/7 on the Poetry Live Facebook page, so post your work! I might read or watch yours whilst on live steam tomorrow night!
Next up, we’ll have our Guest Poet, Liz Morton! Elizabeth Morton is a storyteller and poet. Her first poetry collection, Wolf, was published by Mākaro Press, and this year Otago University Press published her second, This is your real name.
She has an MLitt Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow, and is completing an MSc in Applied Neuroscience with King’s College London. In her free time she likes to lip sync to Joy Division in a blacked-out living room.
Just a cheeky reminder that the submissions for the Poetry Live 40th Year Anniversary is open now! Send your best three poems (at a total of 5 A4 pages) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are accepting published and unpublished poems too. We like the idea of seeing where your words have flown to from Poetry Live’s stage. If they are previously published, please make sure to follow the fine-print from that specific publication and reference accordingly.
Hope to see you here on the Poetry Live Facebook page at 8:00pm!
