Australian Poetry Hall of Fame in Guyra

Travelling back from the Banjo Paterson Australian Poetry Competition in Orange, I stopped by Guyra for a walk. I came upon a disused theatre and decided there and then to create "The Australian Poetry Hall of Fame. 

This project will revitalise the small country town of Guyra on the New South Wales New England Tableland and provide not only employment for the town but also bring in a whole new range of industries based on literature, arts and publishing. 

The people of the world will benefit from this project as will preserve and celebrate the languages and songlines of the original people of Australia as well as celebrate the literary achievements of Australia's greatest poets, living and dead. 

These funds will be used to  help pay for the initial set up costs  such as  website, point of sale system and computer, legal, administrative and initial licences, insurance and business registrations and permits, seating, lighting and a PA system.

Your support is gratefully appreciated and this project will conserve Australian poetic literature for future generations and provide an exciting entertainment and cultural arts venue in regional Australia.
