We list all events in Melbourne and it's outer regions that have a primary focus on spoken word and poetry.

Please fill out all the required fields for listing. We recommend you look at other events listings on the website for an idea of what we need to list your event properly, but mostly an image that is in the right format and size, and a clear blurb in third person.

Do not include bios of performers in your submission. Performer bios are submitted separately here.

We do not accept submissions for hybrid open mic nights that also contain music and other things, as it would overwhelm the site when we want to focus on poetry and spoken word. Open mics that focus on poetry and spoken word, but permit some music or instruments is ok, but please be aware there are a million music open mics in this city and time and space for poets is a rare and sacred thing.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
