Let us entertain you ... with this weekend's gig guide

THIS weekend the Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival has a host of events to stimulate the mind.

From the political to the sublime, panel discussions to workshops - this year the list of speakers and performers is outstanding.

If you haven't already booked a ticket to the Poetry Slam it's always entertaining and far from the dry over-wrought image poetry sometimes attracts.

Whatever you do this weekend, don't waste a moment.
