Dead Poets Society
Hosted by Sean M Whelan – Melbourne Performance Poet. Each person is encouraged to bring a poem by a favourite Dead Poet as we take turns in reading them together in honour of the poets lost but not forgotten.
Sean M Whelan is a poet, playwright, DJ, podcaster, and film maker. His two books of poetry are Love is the New Hate and Tattooing the Surface of the Moon. In 2018 he began a podcast called More Than A Whelan, in which he interviews creatives of all disciplines about their practices and he creates poems from prompts supplied by his listeners. He often performs his work with musicians and in 2014 he made an album with his band The Interim Lovers called Softly and Suddenly (available to stream on Bandcamp.) He has recently formed a new band called Crystal Veins. He is also the 2020 Poets’ Corner Poet Laureate.
