I’m planning my first University excursion 😀

With my small class of six students studying their Grad. Dip. in Education (secondary English), I will be heading into Brisbane city to attend events that are part of the Global Poetics Tour:

Slam poets Jive, Ken and Mahogany will be slamming into Brisbane for the Australian Poetry Slam competition, which has its second Brisbane Heat on Friday 9th September.  I think that’s the event we’ll be going to…although the Sunday event also looks pretty appealing: Black Star Tribute ‘Words or Whatever’ at the Black Star Cafe in West End.

I wonder what event my students will choose for the excursion – we make the selection in tomorrow’s tutorial!

      Plan a trip up here at the end of the year and we’ll do play-research. I wanna make a game! My thought yesterday was: design a pack of cards based on Shakespearean plays. Initial idea – four suites = four tragedies; cards with characters that are assigned a value; players can modify values according to their analyses (therefore altering the game). Jokers = the fools. Kings = tragic heroes. etc.
      Come have a Brisbane excursion!!!
