The C.J. Dennis Society

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.
