THE Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival will serve as a launching pad for a poetry book released by a local poet and performer this weekend.
Local poet and performer The Poet Mj will be launching her latest book of poetry with a live performance at the festival at the Penola CWA Hall at 2-3pm Sunday.
Entry is free and afternoon tea will be served after the performance at a small cost.
The Poet MJ will be joined by Penola playwright Annie Kilsby in a show combining poetry and comedy skits.
The Poet Mj also runs a poetry blog at www.thepoetmj.com.
The blog features a selection of her work and examinations of the work of other poets.
Fans can also order works she has produced, including selections of poems and sayings.
