This is going to be the most exciting event of the year. Footscray Community Arts Centre, alongside Word Travels and Going Down Swinging, presents the return of One Night Stanza. After a sell-out show last year in connection with the Emerging Writers Festival, this year Anis Mojgani returns with Buddy Wakefield and Amal Kassir to headline the ‘Poetic (Days) Weekend’ which will include a performance, plus workshops and a film screening.

With other performers set to be announced, the line-up also includes the founder of Word Travels, Miles Merrill plus Amharic poet Helen Kassa, and Melbourne’s very own Jessie Giles. Tickets sold out fast last time so we’d suggest booking early to avoid being bitterly disappointed.

But we thought we’d let the three poets speak for themselves, and check out the program below, plus the upcoming events page for other events featuring the three of them.
