Slamalamadingdong presents a special workshop, introducing you to slam and spoken word, facilitated by MC_Fembot (Michelle Dabrowski) and Joel McKerrow. Limited spots available.
Have you been attending our monthly slams and secretly journaling your musings in your notebook? Does your heart race during the whole last round of the slam and until about 4 in the morning thereafter, as visions of your own feet at the edge of the stage flash across your mind’s eye? Well my friend, you know it’s time.
Come and learn the skills of spoken word poetry with the best of them and even how to craft your piece into a poem for the slam.
Then just casually win and represent Melbourne at the Nationals in the US. You know it’s your destiny. Welcome home Poet, come and be held.
In a full day curated by Joel and Michelle, you will be playfully challenged in a safe space. You will leave with a toolkit of poetic techniques that will develop your writing and confidence in your performance.
Every second Wednesday, behind the bookshelf in Sooki Lounge’s secret downstairs ‘nook’, you will find a collection of Belgrave’s local creatives opening their chests and sharing their heart with one another.
An incredibly supportive environment where each poet is greeted with genuine applause.

Tim Evans is still recovering from being English and can be found performing his poems at gigs and slams all over Melbourne and beyond. His hobbies are anxiety, depression and jokes and he often does them all at the same time. He’s been published on Audacious Vol. 4, has featured at The Dan O’Connell, Owl & Cat Readings, Poetry at Tago Mago and Poet’s Corner and was a Slamalongdingdong 2017 finalist. Several people have said nice things about his poetry but have refused to go on the record. He likes using self-deprecation but he isn’t very good at it.
