And because you want to know more about our feature acts:

David Stavanger
David Stavanger is an award winning poet, writer, and cultural producer. In 2013 he won the Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize, resulting in the release of his first full-length collection of poetry The Special, which was also awarded the 2015 Wesley Michel Wright Prize. At the 2014 Queensland Literary Awards he received a Queensland Writing Fellowship to develop his next two collections. David is also the Co-Director of the Queensland Poetry Festival.

The Fanciful Fiction Auxiliary
Fanciful Fiction Auxiliary is a fictitious amateur writers’ group comprised of miscellaneous oddball characters with ‘ideas’ about their place in the literary world. The various ‘members’ of the auxiliary are devised and performed by a revolving group of established and emerging writers who have been invited to turn bad, go rogue, overwrite, underwrite. 'Do it Wrong.'

The FFA has appeared at Woodford Folk Festival, Bad!Slam!No!Memoir!, the Brisbane Fringe Festival, and the Queensland Poetry Festival.

Tessa Rose
Tessa Rose is a poet and performance artist. She has performed at Brisbane Square Library, Ruckus Slam, The National Folk Festival, and Woodford Folk Festival. She performs avant-Jazzercise with Pascalle Burton in 24-Hour Gym, composes Twin Peaks found poetry, and co-produced the Old Museum’s spoken word open mic night, BAD!SLAM!NO!MEMOIR!

Beige Browne
Beige Brown is Australia’s foremost feminist performance poet. Her permutative sound poetry introduces productive uncertainty into the phallogentric thrust of mainstream literary culture, fissuring the pompous edifice and causing little word-rivulets to trickle out from many smaller openings. A previous participant at Noted, she has been willfully excluded from other larger literary festivals, yet is highly regarded by the discerning amongst Australia’s literary cognoscenti.

The mysterious mystery
And of course there is the mystery we are keeping mysterious!

So, remember, join BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! inside the Phoenix Pub, sign up from 7:30pm, poetry slam from 8pm, 1st prizes! glory! 2 minutes! No music! No props! Your original material (unless you’re a rebel, we welcome rebels)!


All inside the Phoenix Pub. All part of Noted. All for your words and teeth.
