Lentil as Anything in Abbotsford are now hosting a monthly poetry open mic on the third Friday of each month.
Come on down to a night of poetry at Lentil As Anything Abbotsford where you can enjoy our a la carte dinner while listening to some original poetry and share your poems in a safe place.
Come on down to the finest bar in town to indulge your senses: tulip lighting, Absinthe drinking and kick ass poetry! Hosted by Grant Alexander McCracken and Lisa McLean, this casual affair contrasts the extravagant and sparkling surrounds in which it is held. On the last Wednesday of each month at 6pm Poetry at Absinthesalon sees one feature poet express until their heart’s content while sharing the floor with anyone who feels compelled to voice their work. No stage, no mic, just raw natural voices projecting our vibes out into the ether. Join them for a magical night of poetry, community and, of course, Absinthe!

Meena Shamaly is a poet, composer, and musician. He identifies as a foreigner everywhere, with a hybrid cultural and creative identity. He is also one of the creative producers of Slamalamadingdong.
Sharifa A Tartoussi is a dental student, poet and performer. Equal parts worrier, warrior and all round human, when she is not squinting at teeth or hitting the books, she writes and sometimes, she works up the courage to perform. She is involved in several creative projects, most notably becoming half the founding party of GriffinSpeak; a poetry and spoken word gig that runs quarterly and aims to create space for voices from marginalised groups around Melbourne.
