It's never to late to join in. Just make sure to message me and let me know so I can add you here too.
1. Write a poem, in any form, from the perspective of a river ... not about a river ... but from the river's own outlook. Become the river!
2. The river's name must be included in the poem AND the name must be that of an Australian river! (A list of Australian rivers and creeks can be found here. By clicking on the name of the river or creek you will find a wealth of information which might be useful in your poem!)
3. There must be at least one word beginning with the letter 'q' in the poem.
4. A number, OR date, OR year, should also appear in the poem.
