The Poetry of Wetland Textures with Lakshmi Kanchi (SoulReserve) at Story Lounge

Saturday June 18, 2022
10:00 - 11:30
  • This event has passed.

Tinker in the poetry of wetland textures with Lakshmi Kanchi (pen name SoulReserve) as she brings you to the very heart of wetlands. In this poetry writing workshop, learn to hold sensations and create pieces that sense, speak, and spark conversation.

Lakshmi R Kanchi, pen name SoulReserve, is an emerging Western Australian poet of Indian descent. Her poetry explores love and its tumultuous and fantastical and zesty nature through allegories that provoke thought and evoke tender feelings. Lakshmi’s writing anatomises the complex linkages between history, language, culture and perception. She is the current Poet-in-Residence at The Wetlands Centre Cockburn. She is the recipient of the 2021 Pocketry Prize for Unpublished Poets and her poem ‘Watermarks’ was shortlisted for the South Coast Writers Centre’s 2022 Poetry Prize. You can read her published works in Across Vast Horizons, Poetry d’Amour – 2019 & 2020, Letters To Our Home, The Saltbush Review, Recoil 12, Blue Bottle Journal, Burrow Journal, Brushstrokes II and Creatrix.
