“To have great poets, there must be great audiences too.” – Walt Whitman
Queensland Poetry Festival takes the poetic arts onto centre stage. Why do we love poetry? For the same reasons that you do. For its ability to transcend, to reach into the unknown and evoke the unspoken Queensland Poetry Festival is committed to poetry as a lived artform. We showcase the vibrancy of Queensland and Australia’s poetry communities by supporting emerging and developing poets, and celebrating the depth and breadth of poetic expression in all of its guises. We value the work of our poets and spoken word artists, and demonstrate this by offering them professional employment and presenting the festival in state-of-the-art venues. Along with our poets, we foster a culture of poetic innovation and cultivate artistic excellence, showcasing world-class poetry to Queensland audiences, provoking you to see the world afresh with Queensland Poetry Festival.
We are able to do all of this with thanks to the generous support of individuals, government bodies, corporate sponsors, and philanthropic organisations. Help us keep poetry alive and support Queensland Poetry Festival today. This is a wonderful opportunity for you or your organisation to join Australia’s vibrant poetic communities and build the sustainability of this timeless artform.
