Podcast With Poet Craig Billingham

Our latest podcast episode is now online – join John Merriman as he talks to Craig Billingham, a Blue Mountains based poet. Craig’s poems have been published in many Australian journals, including recently in Heat, Meanjin, Snorkel, and Antipodes. Craig’s poem “The Fan” was published in 2011 as part of The Red Room Company’s Sun Herald “Extra” Series. He will also be one of the poets performing at Poetry Under the Stars on Friday 30th November 2012, at the new Katoomba Library in the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre.

You can also read some of Craig’s work here:



Blue Mountains City Library, in collaboration with local poets, presents a FREE family-friendly, National Year of Reading 2012, community event.

Bring family and friends, a picnic tea (no alcohol please), a rug or folding chair, and sit beneath the stars in the shared courtyard of the new Blue Mountains Cultural Centre and Library – 30 Parke Street, Katoomba. (If the weather is bad, we’ll move inside the new Katoomba Library).

 Be enchanted by our talented local poets, reading their original work. 

 MC’d by Lis Bastian with musical entertainment provided by the Mudlarks choir and friends.

 Friday 30th November 2012 from 6pm-9pm
