One day Waffle Irongirl walked into a bar. Spoken word grabbed her by the scruff of the neck and rattled all her certainties. She found her heart-home among poets, story-tellers and other recalcitrants. Her poetry has been included in the audio journal “Audacious 4”. Her illustrated chapbook Margin Doodles Vol 1 is available on the MSW website. She has featured at spoken word events across Melbourne where she has never once met a fake scam tax collector. Her performances are the poetical analogue of heavy metal karaoke. If you’ve never tried it, you should. Find her at https://waffleirongirl.com.
