Showcasing Victorian poets of all stripes, join us at The Wheeler Centre and online for a dazzling line-up of poets working across forms.

Some of the most exciting and groundbreaking poetic talents from around the country come together for the third annual Poetry Month Gala to share brilliant works and celebrate the 20th anniversary of Australia’s leading poetry organisation, Red Room Poetry.

Launched in 2021, Red Room’s Poetry Month aims to increase access, awareness and visibility of poetry in all its forms and for all audiences.

Discover new work from a dazzling line-up of poets working across forms – from spoken word and performance to music and multimedia – including Susie Anderson, Manisha Anjali (pictured), Emilie Zoey Baker, Andrea Goldsmith (reading unpublished poems by Dorothy Porter), Eloise Grills, international guest poet Kevin Jared Hosein, Maya Hodge, Andy Jackson, Jessica Wilkinson, a collaboration between Erik Jensen and Evelyn Ida Morris, and a favourite Australian poem being read by Jason Steger (Books Editor at The Age.) Hosted by Izzy Roberts-Orr.

This event will be both live and live streamed. Further venue accessibility information here.
