POETRY BY LIZZ

Published by under Exhibitions

Local writer and poet Lizz Murphy has read her poetry in cafes and courthouses, fetes and festivals, libraries and lounges, schools and sculleries. She writes from a regional base, a Belfast background, a community conviction, a left slant, a visual arts perspective, a skewed eye… Her poetry is about ordinary people, rural living, world conflict, displacement.

You can catch Lizz reading her poetry on Tuesday March 20th, 7.30 – 9.30pm @ Manning Clark House, Forrest, ‘Canberra Wine and Nibbles Talk’.

or at the National Library Bookshop on Saturday 17th March as part of the St Patrick’s Day Irish – Australian writers readings
