Chris Huet, aka CJ Bowerbird, is many things, but being a poet is ‘the thing that whispers in the ear of all his other labels.’ In this exhilarating talk, CJ shares his poem with us and asks us to find our own best expression of what it is to be human.
CJ Bowerbird is the 2013 Australian Poetry Slam Champion. He tells stories through verse, crafting poetry into paper planes of performance. CJ explores what it is to be human, taking audiences on flights through despair and salvation without ever losing his sense of humour.
CJ has been dispatching poetry from his home in Canberra, Australia, for the past four years. He has been a featured performer at the Bookworm International Literary Festival in China and at the You Are Here and Art, Not Apart festivals in Canberra.
