Welcome to The C.J. Dennis Society
The C.J. Dennis Society arose spontaneously in 2010 during a Toolangi Festival weekend. In the same beautiful "Singing Gardens" where Dennis wrote much of his work, an enthusiastic audience heard talented performers bring his verse to life. It was agreed that Dennis deserved to be better known, and the C.J. Dennis Society, and this website is the result.
Here you can learn more about our society, C.J. Dennis himself, and how you can get involved.
Entries are now open for the 2017 C.J Dennis Poetry competition - entry forms can be downloaded by clicking here.
ALSO REMEMBER THE POETRY COMPETITION RESULTS WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE 2017 C.J. DENNIS POETRY FESTIVAL ON 21 & 22 OCTOBER 2017- AT "THE SINGING GARDENS," (DENNIS' FORMER HOME) TOOLANGI
The Festival program will be posted on this website soon!
