About The Event
Paris Rosemont's poetry has found eclectic homes, from international literary journals and anthologies through to quirky underground zines. Her niche is theatrical performance poetry. She has appeared at the Sydney Fringe Festival, world premiere of Slam Messiah 2022, Ubud Writers & Readers Festival 2023 and Short+Sweet Festival Illawarra 2023, where she was awarded Best Script.
Paris’s debut poetry collection, Banana Girl, traverses topics that are at once deeply personal, yet universal – explorations of love, loss and heartbreak, lust, sex and violence, the complexity of shifting power dynamics, peppered with a smattering of social commentary. As a second generation Asian-Australian, Paris also explores issues of identity and displacement, reclaiming power through her literary expression.
I hope these poems will speak, sing and howl to you, in the way that they speak, sing and howl to me. ~ali whitelock
Paris’s poetry sparkles with originality of voice, integrity of feeling, sass, sensuality, depth of thought, rebellion, and tenderness. ~Mark Tredinnick (OAM)
