Thuy On is Reviews Editor of ArtsHub and an arts journalist, editor, critic and poet. Her debut collection of poetry, Turbulence, was published in 2020 by UWAP. Her poems have appeared in a range of both online and print publications including Australian Poetry, Mascara Literary Magazine, Cordite, Eureka Street, Djed Press, Gargouille, The Moth, and The Saturday Paper.

Gloria Demillo was originally meant to be performing but they’ve had to pull out due to a family emergency. All the best Gloria, and hopefully we can reschedule for next year.

Post Performance Note

We had such a special evening! Thuy On gave an intimate, witty performance with vivid, poignant and fervent expressions. Celine Yap was heartfelt, funny and her singing was just so beautiful. The open mic was brilliant and thanks to everyone who came for creating such a friendly atmosphere. Special thanks also to Brendan Bonsack, Hamish Danks-Brown and Emma Fayelecaun.

Thuy On’s book Turbulence is available at good bookstores like Readings, Brunswick Bound and The Sun – but it’s best to ring ahead and check first to see if they have any in stock. Alternatively you can order directly from her publisher:
