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.


STEPHANIE DOGFOOT (aka Stephanie Chan) is a poet, comedian, educator, and former national slam champion of Singapore and the UK. Their debut poetry collection Roadkill for Beginners was published in 2019. They are co-editing a Singapore LGBTQ poetry and prose anthology called EXHALE and produces a monthly poetry night called Spoke & Bird.
JAYA SAVIGE was born in Sydney, raised on Bribie Island, and lives and works in London. He is the author of Latecomers, which won the NSW Premier’s Kenneth Slessor Prize, and Surface to Air, which was shortlisted for The Age Poetry Book of the Year. His latest collection is Change Machine (UQP 2020).


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

Couplet Poetry Online is presented in partnership with Qld Live Streaming.
