Melbourne Spoken Word is the online connection to the Melbourne poetry and spoken word scene. Our city is full of poetry readings, poet, slams, slammers, spoken word gigs and poetic individuals. It is a diverse scene with a lot happening, but we want to share it with other people. This site is maintained by people in the Melbourne spoken word and poetry scene for the scene and to welcome others.
It includes a list of the upcoming events in Melbourne, including open stage opportunities for anyone to get up and perform, as well as reviews of the latest publications of poetry, interviews of poets in the scene and a discussion about the state of poetry.
