Welcome to Dangerously Poetic Press

Dangerously Poetic is an incorporated community group seeking to encourage, publish and promote quality poetry from the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, Australia. Dangerously Poetic considers our role, as promoters of poetry, an important part of community building.

Many DP members are long established poets and the first priority is to give the members an opportunity to get their own work published. To this end, the collective has set up a standards panel so that work offered for publication is of the highest quality.

Paper People by Kathryn Boorman

Sunday, the 26th of November from 3-5 pm at
Brunswick Heads Memorial Hall,
22 Fingal Street., Brunswick Heads

Dangerously Poetic Press is launching their sixteenth publication, Paper People, by Kathryn Boorman. Rich with quirky characters encountered through a wealth of life experience, these lyrical poems were crafted over a twenty-year period.

Mick O’Regan will be launching the collection on Sunday, the 26th of November from 3-5 pm at Brunswick Heads Memorial Hall, 22 Fingal Street.

Harmonies from The Songbirds and a reading from the collection will be followed by champagne and treats.

The book will be sold at a special launch discount of $15 and entry is $10 cash at the door.

Dangerously Poetic Press also offers workshops on all phases of the creation process, from inspiration to fine tuning your work, from how to submit poems for print publication and contests, to how to perform your poem at readings.
