A new poetry festival celebrating the influence of Japanese poetry in Australia will take place in Melbourne in the last week of September. The festival is cross-cultural in nature, featuring the work of Japanese-Australian writers (such as a tanka group, a haiku poet and more) and Australian authors influenced by Japanese styles and themes. Events are currently planned to take place at the University of Melbourne and in Melbourne city.

We are seeking expressions of interest from:

-Japanese-Australian poets and people interested in talking about poetry.

-Women of Japanese background interested in reading works by female Japanese poets.

We also welcome general expressions of interest and other proposals.
