Bush Poetry continues to be a major part of the Boyup Brook Country Music Festival, with the Sunday morning Bush Poet’s Breakfast being among the biggest and best in Australia.
The 2020 Bush Poetry program will be over four days as it has been in previous years. This is to allow time to keep the workshops and all the performances in the program.
We will continue with the Bush Poetry Writer’s Competition as part of the Festival program. There will again be two sections; Open and Emerging Poets (who have not won a writers competition.) There will be a $10.00 entry fee per poem and $100.00 prize money for each section.
