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.
