Words Out Loud opens its Snapshot Series on September 19 as part of the Ballarat Foto Biennale.
The Snapshot Series is a three-event series celebrating the power of photographs to trigger stories, whether real or fantastical.
The three events each target a theme, and are headlined by special guests with opportunities for writers, poets and storytellers to also be involved.
The Southern Cross Short Story Competition runs every second year, alternating with the Martha Richardson Memorial Poetry Prize. The 2019 Southern Cross Short Story Competition is now open!

Words Out Loud is “ticking the boxes” for our May edition.
Wordsmiths are invited to warm up for the federal election, go left field or simply ignore the theme altogether.
This is a great opportunity to road test new material, celebrate a success or share some inspiration, or simply enjoy a diverse range of spoken word — poetry, prose or storytelling; read or recited; your own work or someone else’s. Performances are limited to 5 minutes each. Sign up on the night.
