The 2019 Melbourne Spoken Word & Poetry Festival is proposed to take place from July 11 to 22, 2019. The festival will consist of a bunch of flagship events organised by Melbourne Spoken Word, featuring Melbourne and Victorian based, interstate and international spoken word artists and poets, a range of events programmed by regular poetry events, as well as special one-off events programmed by other organisations and conveners.
We're inviting spoken word artists and poets to register an expression of interest with the event, if you're available and interested in being booked for the festival. There is no guarantee you will be invited just because you submit an expression of interest. MSW will consider all applications for events programmed and curated by MSW, and some events programmed and curated by other organisations within the festival, including partner orgs and regular spoken word events, may elect to consider EOIs from the pool, but are not obligated to.
Please note, at this time, we cannot guarantee we can subsidise or help applicants who are travelling to attend MSWPF 2019. You apply with the understanding you may be asked to make your own way to the festival.
