Your city. Your microphone. Your blank page.

Melbourne Spoken Word is an emerging community run arts organisation set up to celebrate, promote and unite the thriving organic live spoken word and poetry community in our city. We draw attention and promote the city’s network of performances, readings, open mics, slams and workshops through a gig guide, email list and social media presence, as well as host our events, touring poets, running the Melbourne Spoken Word & Poetry Festival and The Melbourne Spoken Word Prize.

Melbourne Spoken Word lists and promotes any event within Victoria that’s primary focus is on the spoken word.
