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.
Date: Thursday May 16
Time: doors open at about 6.30pm, words from 7pm
Venue: the Printers Room, in the basement of Sebastiaans at the corner of Mair and Lydiard streets. Enter from Mair. Note: the venue is stair-free. Take in the air in the beer garden. Enjoy the show from couches, the tables or a seat by the bar.
Eat and drink: The full menu is available, as well as a $20 two-course meal deal, with bar service.
Cost: Free, with a gold coin donation appreciated.
