Callings poets, spoken word artists, word smiths, performance poets, or lovers of any of those things. This website is the beginning of a central online portal into Melbourne’s spoken word scene. Featuring reviews and interviews looking at the CDs, books, gigs, festivals and personalities of the scene as well as featuring all of the upcoming features, slams, workshops, open mics and events. We’ll also discuss the issues and debates on the scene. At least we’re hoping.
And by ‘we,’ I mean I’m looking for other poets, performers and those involved in the scene to contribute. We have sites that feature upcoming events, and others that sometimes feature reviews, but I’m hoping this will become a central online hub for the scene contributed by those who know it best.
