Friendly Street Poets

Summary
Friendly Street Poets, often referred to as just Friendly Street, is a poetry reading group and publisher in Adelaide, South Australia, established in 1975. History Friendly Street Poets was inaugurated as a fortnightly poetry reading on 11 November 1975, organised by Andrew Taylor, Richard Tipping and Ian Reid. The first meeting took place on the roof of the former Gordon Sim Choon fireworks factory, on Union Street (off Rundle Street) in the East End of Adelaide. Then Chief Justice of South Australia, John Bray, himself a poet, was present. Jenny Boult was also instrumental in setting up the group. It soon became a monthly event, and after about a year of meeting at the Media Resource Centre (then at 1 Union Street), the group moved to the Federal Box Factory. In 1977 a selection of the best poets from that year's readings was published as the Friendly Street Reader, and a similar volume has been produced annually since then. Events
