Couplet Poetry is a free monthly event, with extended readings from two poets whose work offers complements and contrasts.

Couplet Poetry represents a long-standing collaboration between Brisbane Libraries and Queensland Poetry Festival.

To keep our communities safe during the 2020 COVID-19 crisis, Couplet Poetry is now presented online via facebook live.

Tune in and enjoy the live-chat every first Friday of the month at 6pm AEST on the QPF or Brisbane Libraries facebook page.
