May Words Out Loud

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.
