Melbourne Spoken Word accepts pitches for articles including interviews, commentary pieces, short essays. We do not accept text-based poetry submissions. We accept video and audio recordings (see other categories for more info on that.) We require that the pitch is for a piece of writing relevant to the Melbourne Spoken Word scene.

We especially like:-
  • Interviews with poets and people involved in the Melbourne poetry and spoken word scene
  • Commentary on aural based poetry, spoken word, especially its relationship in Melbourne
  • Articles with educational content on the history or techniques of spoken word, the poetry scene in Melbourne
  • Satirical articles relevant to the above
Please pitch your idea first, a paragraph or two on what you want to write about. We endeavour to reply within a week. Articles should typically be a minimum of 500 words, with a limit of 1,000, or more under certain circumstances.
We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
