A conversation with Peter Bakowski [Australia]:
Peter Bakowski is a Melbourne poet, and the author of five collections of poetry. He is constantly on the road, presenting his work at readings and in workshops. In October 2004 he was in Tasmania after securing a residency with the Hobart City Council, and I met with him at the Writers' Cottage in Hobart. As is the case with many of his ventures on the road, Bakowski is accompanied on this occasion by his family. Peter sits opposite from me across the kitchen table, while Helen pops in and out of the room. Their son Walter sits on his lap, regarding my tape recorder with quizzical attention.

...

"I've always had a long term view of my poetry career," he replied, adding that he now has a reputation for his poetry tours, one he's keen to maintain and expand upon. "You might do a poetry reading in Canberra, and nine months later someone will come to a poetry reading in Richmond in Melbourne and say, 'I heard you read in Canberra nine months ago and I've come again tonight and I've brought my friend along'. You can never underestimate the snowball effect. I'm simply trying to maintain and elevate my profile, both on a domestic and an international level."
