Out of the Ordinary : On Poetry and the World

A Conference in Canberra on December 5-7. 2022

Out of the Ordinary: On Poetry and the World is a three-day conference on poetry and poetics to be held over 5th to 7th December 2022, at the University of Canberra. The conference investigates poetry’s relationship to the extraordinary. 

​As a BBP cygnet you will get to meet BBP poets, Owen Bullock, Moya Costello and Nathanael O’Reilly.

Keynote events will include a panel on poetry in the light of ordinary language philosophy, a “collideorscape,” with mini-lectures and readings, of Finnegans Wake in the centre of the National Capital, and a keynote series of readings by major contemporary poets.

Attendees will be asked to submit proof of travel offsetting, as one plank (alongside carbon-neutral catering, public transport, low energy accommodation and paper eradication) in the conference’s strategy of achieving Climate Active certification as a Carbon Neutral Event.

All info and call for papers HERE.
