Poetry Reading Prince Albert Hotel Gawler

The poetry reading at the Prince Albert Hotel in Gawler South Australia is on the last Sunday of the month at 2.00pm. Poets put a gold coin in the tin and write their name in the book.

Then they listen to the fine poetry until it's their turn to read a few poems. It's all great fun and the audience is very friendly and supportive. I'm involved in running this event and I'm having a great time with it.

I would love to see you at the Prince Albert Hotel one Sunday! The best poems left will be considered for publication in a poetry reader which will be launched at the November event. If you don't have time this year, I recommend you make time next year you come along to the friendliest poetry readings!

Looking forward to hearing you read!
