[Original] Come along to the launch of Peter Ramm's debut poetry collection Waterlines with internationally renowned poet Mark Tredinnick.

About this event
Come and spend a cool Highlands afternoon in poetry with award winning poets Peter Ramm and Mark Tredinnick as they official launch Peter's debut collection Waterlines by Vagabond Press.

Join us in the Lounge Room of the historic Robertson Hotel for a fireside reading of poetry, set in the landscapes of the Highlands and East Coast of NSW. Grab a wine or coffee from the bar and enjoy a grazing table spread with fine company. All welcome.

These are timeless poems – long linocuts and etchings of nature and place. Ramm lays down his lines like a painter, creating sketches of family and vignettes of life. Each poem is a beachcomber walking with wonder along the waterlines of a perfect beach. 
—Damen O'Brien

Whatever love is for, poetry does that: Peter Ramm’s book is an instance. The collection Peter has crafted is shapely and wise and beautiful.—Mark Tredinnick

'Waterlines doesn’t read like a first collection. Which is not to say it isn’t fresh or exciting. Rather, that this is a poet at the height of their powers ... People who adore the great Australian poets Judith Beveridge or Gwen Harwood will love this collection.'—Broede Carmody, Sydney Morning Herald/The Age

Copies available on the night.

Join us.
