Poetry is woven into the past and present of Tamborine Mountain so the launch of the first Calanthe Press publication on August 19, the poetry of Jena Woodhouse, is cause for great celebration. Under the Greenwood Tree is privileged to host this very special event for Jena, The Calanthe Collective and Tamborine Mountain and looks forward to welcoming all poetry enthusiasts to the occasion.
Jena Woodhouse is the author/translator/compiler of seven published books in various genres. Her poems have twice been shortlisted for the Montreal International Poetry Prize. Her passions include the natural world (particularly birds) the arts, travel and archaeology.
Calanthe Press is an initiative of the Calanthe Collective, a not-for-profit association, which hosts poetry events on Tamborine Mountain. The Collective is inspired by the lives and work of poet and activist Judith Wright and philosopher and writer Jack McKinney; the house Calanthe (named for the ‘Christmas orchid’, Calanthe triplicata) was their home on Tamborine Mountain for many years.
