happy V day

Today the sweetest 'lil cafe in Newtown - Parliament on King (POK)

 is sending a bunch of poetic valentines to coolest wee bar in Luang Prabang, Laos - the Icon Klub and host-poet Elizabeth Vongsaravanh and friends. 

Poets will skype their love offerings back and forth from both venues this Sydney arvo/evening. 

Also skyping in (technology, V day dates and time zone confusions permitting) will be: 
from the Philipines, Luis Batchoy
from Chennai, India, Sharanya Manivannan 
from Yangon, Burma, Thet Swe Win, Aung Myo Khant and members of YEP
from the Irrawaddy Literary Festival in Mandalay, Jennifer McKenzie. 
from Siem Reap, Loven Ramos.

Jan Cornall will read/sing poems sent by Darwin poet Claine Keily, Yangon conceptual poet, Nyein Way, Brisbane Poet Samuel Wagan Watson, and more. Taking part live at POK will be Chris Raja, Mujib, Abid, Ravi Prasad, Diana Plater, Ben Sutton, Kinga Bisits, Sonia Bible, Rachel Anne Abrahams, Shikha Sahay, Louie Joyce and many more. 

Others will leave poems on our FB page Love Poets Anon. I hope you will too!
