Adelaide poet and organiser Peach and poet Georgia Oatley will both be performing on the night.

“We’ve done it in a way that is quite intimate, the audience will feel very close to the poet” says Peach. 

Poetry has be an important outlet for them both, they explain how they use poetry as a way to express themselves.

“Poetry for me has been a natural response of being alive, it’s a natural outlet” explains Georgia.
