Paris recently did an audio recording of one of her poems for PACT Centre for Emerging Artists. Her poem will be played amongst nine others on little old school radios around Erskineville on Friday 24th February as part of Sound Out the Street.
The theme for the recording was 'love letters'. Paris chose to record her epic 9x9x9 poem entitled 'The Little Black Book of Lady Curiosa': 9 stanzas, each with 9 lines, each line featuring 9 syllables. Find out what (or more pertinently, whom!) is between the sheets of Lady Curiosa!

Poetry Jukebox Live!
Paris will be performing a set of sensual, celebratory poetry infused with depth of feeling and a lightness of touch,
for Poetry Sydney as part of
Pride Amplified: Sydney World Pride 2023.
Date: Wednesday 22nd February, 7pm
Venue: Knox Street Bar
Tickets may be purchased here.
Paris is thrilled to bits about having been commissioned by Randwick City Council to write two poems inspired by the newly restored historic Blenheim House - its location, community and/or history.
Paris will perform these brand new poems amidst an hour-long
19th century-inspired poetry set with a twist.
Paris has successfully pitched to bring to life a Poetry Jukebox Live, whereby she will perform poetry on-demand for members of the public, who may select from a 'setlist' of her original poems as well as 19th century classics. This will give Paris' set an element of jukebox style randomness dictated by the spontaneity of peoples' choice.
