Join Colleen Keating for a reading and conversation about her poetry, followed by morning tea. Colleen is dedicated to poetry. In her own words:
“I enjoy the pursuit of words to express my amazement with life. My work explores the paradox and wonder of nature, the harsh realities of life, of inequality, injustice and increasing threat to our natural environment – as a well-known novelist once put it, I want to “name the unnameable, shape the world and stop it from going to sleep”.
For me, poetry is vocational. I not so much choose it as my medium of expression as much as it chooses me. To guide my thoughts and the things I write, I prize awareness, mindfulness and an unperishing sense of wonder about the world.
