Sarah St Vincent Welch’s chapbook Open was launch by Anna Couani at The Shop Gallery in Glebe last Sunaday. The next launch will take place in Canberra at ‘That Poetry Thing That Is On At Smith’s Every Monday Night’, Smith’s Alternative, 76 Alinga Street, Canberra City/Civic on Monday at 7pm on Monday 8th April.
“Sarah St Vincent Welch dangles you under ‘a conker sun,’ wears you like ‘a soft corpse on her shoulders,’ slides you ‘into a bird cry.’ In Open each poem is a world – sensuous, intimate, nostalgic. You feel the rhythmic push and shove of these worlds as the poet folds you into them”.…….– Lizz Murphy
