Sixteen pages, 13 182 words later and I have finished transcribing the Laurie Duggan interview! Laurie will be back in Australia in April for the opening of an exhibition at the Wollongong City Art Gallery called "Coalcliff Days". An exhibition from the 15th of April to the 12th of June, featuring the works of Australian poets and Artists associated with the Colacliff house that Ken Bolton and friends squatted in during the late 70s and early 80s.

A list of Australian poet luminaries will be at the opening, including: Ken Bolton, Sal Brereton, Pam Brown, Alan Jefferies and Laurie Duggan. The opening will include poetry readings by writers included in the exhibition, as well as joint readings by Coalcliff poets and young local poets. For more information, check out the Coalcliff Days Blog or the Wollongong Gallery page.
