My poetry has been broadcast, performed and published in a variety of media since 1954 and won several awards, but Summoning the Whirlwind is my first published collection.
Great advance reviews:
‘Joan Katherine Webster’s poems are chock-full of … commonplace objects rubbed to a sacred gloss. …Her poetry sparkles for us all.’ Chris Wallace-Crabbe
‘Here is a poet in love with language… “the mystic skill of rhyme”, rhythms and subtle imagery… Be prepared to be equally absorbed.’ Rob Wallis .
‘…the intellectual and emotional content of the material …creates an affinity of being with readers … Thus, she lends courage to strangers.’ Noel Tennison.
The chapbook is published by the Melbourne Poets Union www.melbournepoetsunion.com .
I’d love to see you at the launch by actor John Flaus, November 17th, 4-6 pm at the Library Foyer, Mechanics Lane, Castlemaine.
