Hoodlums Spoken Word is the brainchild of the Littlefoot & Co. team. From the South East of Melbourne Hoodlums provides a platform for poets, poetry slam performers, spoken word artists, writers, musicians and storytellers to express themselves in a warm, friendly, unique and supportive environment.
Hoodlums aim to inspire, assist growth, entertain and create a space for cool and interesting people to connect and have fun whilst appreciating the spoken word art form.
Hoodlums Spoken Word exists to give opportunities for all people to get on stage and spill out words into the microphone.
A night for the poetic sweepings of the inner north to degenerate into sleaze, vitriol, and confusion. And rise into revelation, liberating confession and poetic wisps of the sublime. A feast of clashing waters. All in a cozy artsy pup. No features, no list, no limits. Just put your hand up and come on up. Is your piece not really ready? It is for this gig.
The winner of The 2017 Melbourne Spoken Word Prize is Alan Pentland with his piece, ‘Darwin’s Human Race’ performed on Friday, December 1, 2017 at The Wheeler Centre.

Alan was a teen poet qualified as an architect and became a comedian. He ran Melbourne’s first stand up club Le Joke and was a core member of the award-winning TV comedy Fast Forward. His written work has won awards at international film festivals and in business. A radio ad sold lots of hot water systems.
In 2016 Alan returned to his roots, writing and performing spoken word in small sweaty venues. It’s become an exciting journey in words and ideas. Alan struggles however with grammar rhymes badly, and has no, idea where, to put commas.
