extempore ISSUE 4 RELEASED AT UPTOWN JAZZ CAFE
John Clare, print embedded on his features, delivers his work.
Amid the flurry of festivals happening in Melbourne, extempore editor Miriam Zolin hosted a most pleasant launch at Uptown Jazz Cafe, with finger food and Baddaginnie Run wines. Contributors who read extracts from their published work were Merv Collins, who wrote A Fine Romance about his love for the singing of Kerrie Biddell, P.S. Cottier, who wrote the story Noddy rather than her usual poetry, and John Clare, who has a tongue-in-cheek look at John Lennon in his contribution.
It was a great evening, followed by music from Andrea Keller’s ensemble, including the Stonnington Jazz Festival patron and poetry lover Allan Browne, for those who could stay.
Keep up the hard work Miriam. This is a quality journal and deserves support — from subscribers and from government.
Great shot of John! Thanks Roger, glad you could make it. It was a fun night for all of us.
