About The Event
In the first of a new series of Writing WA events featuring authors and poets reading their work to live musical accompaniment, artist and poet Tineke Van der Eecken will be joined by guitarist Will Yeoman.
Tineke Van der Eecken is a Belgian-born Fremantle (Western Australia) based artist and writer. She is a published author of three books: two novels 'Café d'Afrique: a Personal Discovery' and Traverse, and a collection of poems: A Place to Land.
Tineke's Flemish-Australian heritage strongly influences her work, which is often multilingual: she writes in English, Dutch, French, and sometimes in other languages. Her writing is also informed by experiences in Burundi, Zambia, Madagascar and the UK. As well as writing, she creates works in fine metal and other visual art.
Will Yeoman is CEO of Writing WA and a music critic for Gramophone, Limelight and Seesaw Magazine.
