MelbourneSpokenWord.com is a website that was set up last year, for the Melbourne spoken word & poetry scene, intended to be run by the Melbourne spoken word & poetry scene. Last year, a few of us contributed to writing reviews, articles and keeping a list of upcoming events updated.

This year we’re hoping you’ll help us further. Have you been to an open mic, competed in a slam, gone to a poetry book launch? You’re the kind of writers we’re looking for. Perhaps you want to write a short post about your experience performing in the scene for the first time, want to discuss a debate that’s opened up, have some thoughts on a book or CD you’ve bought. If it’s to do with poetry or spoken word in Melbourne than we want to share it.

If you’re interested in contributing, please email [email protected] with your ideas and pitches, or books/CDs you’re interested in reviewing.
