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.

Celebrate our 21 years as a Community Press!

Sunday 6th August from 2-4pm.
Brunsiwck Heads RSL Hall,
24 Fawcett Street.

Everyone is welcome!

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.
