Your personal poem awaits

01 Mar 2011

Docklands pop-poet Karl Bierl wants to compose a poem about you for a new book.

The Dock5 resident says he only needs 10 minutes of your time and $10 to compose a page-length poem for a book which will be known as Simply Personal.

Karl has offered to fund the rest of the publication costs and says his motivation is to bring Docklanders together.

“The book will provide a legacy of moments written in a book.  Examples could be births, birthdays, twenty-firsts, weddings, eulogies, special occasions or a general write-up of a person,” he said.

“The book will not be for public sale but will be only for those people who have their poem in the book.”

“The $10 cost will also include one book.  Subsequent books will only cost $5,” Mr Bierl said.

“I offer this proposal to the first 50 Dockland News readers who contact me.”

Mr Bierl can be contacted on (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
