Bill Gordon is a retired farmer from Boyup Brook WA. He is the coordinator of Bush Poetry for the Boyup Brook Country Music Club and is the president of WA Bush Poets & Yarnspinners Assn. Inc. In that role he is responsible for organising bush poetry at a number of festivals and events throughout WA including Nambung Country Music Muster and Toodyay Bush Poetry festival.
During the winter months Bill can be found somewhere in the northern parts of WA where he regularly entertains in caravan parks and campsites to other like-minded travellers. Many of his experiences in fifty years of farming as well as characters he has met along the way feature in his poems and yarns.
Bill developed a love of Bush Poetry as a small boy reading the works of Banjo Paterson and other poets of that era. He is now known across Australia performing his own works as well as a wide range of modern and traditional poetry. He has a considerable repertoire of traditional and modern poems. He makes people laugh, makes them cry, and makes them think. Whether at a retirement village, music festival or a primary school, Bill has the right poem for any occasion.
