Dangerously Poetic Lillith

Dangerously Poetic Press is delighted to launch their fifteenth collection of poetry, All Her Glorious Forms, by Lilith Rocha.

Lilith is also the founder and teacher of Mana Aloha Hula troupe, which will be performing along with vocalist and songwriter Shelly Hughes. 

Lilith and special guests will be reading favourites of her poems.

There are few who haven’t read Lilith’s pithy astrology column in The Echo, but her lyrical, often sassy poems are a lesser known delight. Her vivid language distils the human condition into lyrical vignettes. 

From Sheena, the Queen of the desert, to Kali, to a hitman, a hula dancer and so many other memorable characters, Lilith’s poems often have a surprise twist.

Lilith Rocha has been the consulting editor and contributor on natural health, travel, arts, food, crafts and entertainment to publications in Australia, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

She has written astrology columns for Coles, Sydney Morning Herald, Melbourne Age, Australian Women’s Weekly as well as the Byron Shire Echo. The event is free, but bring along $25 to take home a signed copy of the book.

Saturday 17 September from 2pm. All are welcome to join the celebration at Marvell Hall in Byron Bay.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
