The Greatest Poet Alive



The Atlantic Magazine nominates our Patron and 2016 guest author, Les Murray as 'THE GREATEST POET ALIVE.' Tickets are online now to see this legend, our national treasure, in Mildura at one of the finest most intimate Writers' Festivals in the country.

 
"If you’re a certain kind of reader, with a certain kind of brain, you’re always on the lookout for the poem that will save your life. Existence heaps itself upon you; your tongue thickens and your thoughts get cluttered. But you keep a muddy eye trained on the world’s poetry portals, the places where the poems come flapping through, because you know that a line, a rhyme, a verb can reboot your internal chitchat and zap you out of all your encrustations. You know that this is the poet’s job, in the end: to remind you—oh, the cheesiness, but oh, the urgency—how to be alive."
