Our Cafe Poet: Flora Smith

Australian Poetry Ltd Cafe Poet Program – 2013
Do you write poetry? Someone who loves the culture of cafes and coffee?
Flora Smith is currently a Café Poet at the Old Bakery on 8th Gallery and Café, at 42 Eighth Ave. Maylands from 10am to midday on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Flora writes, ‘I get to talk to people about poetry, I meet interesting people and do curious things like wrap poetry around sugar containers, and best of all, my friends come for lunch when I knock off at midday and we have lunch in the secret garden out the back. Please come and see me and perhaps bring a poem for us to pore over, or paw over.’

The Cafe Poet Program places poets in cafes as ‘poets in residence’ for a six month period. Poets are given space to write and given complimentary tea and/or coffee and have access to a dedicated Facebook page to get connected with other poets in the program.
