MY FIRST BILLBOARD!!!! What a wonderful email I just received tonight from WA Poets Inc, advising that my work has been selected to be screened on the Northbridge Piazza Superscreen throughout this year's Perth Poetry Festival (September 19-27 2020). I don't know the exact screening schedule, but if you are based in Western Australia be sure to visit the Piazza space if you can during the festival to check out some of the fantastic poetry screening on the billboard. A free signed copy of my poetry book coming your way if you manage to capture a snap of the billboard with my work up in lights.
Graffiti Lane will forever be my Hollywood book, the one that made it to the Oscars winners and nominees including Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Joaquin Phoenix, Anthony Hopkins, Charlize Theron, Scorsese, Tarentino, Scarlett Johansson, Renee Zellwegger, Tom Hanks, Lady Gaga, J-Lo, Jennifer Aniston, Megan Fox, The Kardashian's, Ellen DeGeneres, John Travolta, Robert DeNiro and so many more. Today .... the celebrity madness keeps rolling out on the red carpet, this time being given to PINK (Happy Birthday)!!!
Fun live interview today on Ticker TV, talking with newsroom presenter Adrian Franklin about everything from social issues, to creating impact with poetry, to the current Covid impact on employment and how Adecco are helping jobseekers. Sometimes the live slots are nerve-wracking but enjoyed this chat today. Favourite line that came out of my mouth ‘POETRY IS HIP’ - they tagged it live right across the newsfeed
Today is the 12hr Melbourne Spoken Word Festival closing streamathon and am delighted my poetry short movie, Padlock, took 6th place from a tsunami of incredible 3 minute poetry film submissions (Tied with my friend and poetry genius Scott-Patrick Mitchell). Most proud mumma moment as my sixteen year old son Kayin Van Nelson, directed, filmed, edited, and composed the music for this piece, putting the spotlight on domestic violence. Thank you to all of you who voted and to Melbourne Spoken Word for putting on such a cool visual poetry event xxx
