Sunshine Coast Creative Alliance (SCCA) presents the next Sunday Coaster event for 2022 with local slam poetry legend David Knobel.

David Knobel is a Sunshine Coast based lawyer, writer and performance poet. He began writing and performing poetry in 2013 taking to the stage for the first time at the Woodford Folk Festival's "Wordfood Poetry Slam". He takes inspiration from the work of performance poets like Luka Lesson, Omar Musa, Joelle Taylor and Rudy Francisco. He was the 2018 Queensland Poetry Slam champion going on to perform at the Sydney Opera House for the Australian Poetry Slam final that year. His work has been described as “emotionally intoxicating” presenting “a wisdom and skill beyond his years”. David sees his poetry as both a political act and a personal manifesto.

Join SCCA for an afternoon of networking and short performance at the beautiful Imperial Hotel, Eumundi.

Tickets also available at the door.
