A national celebration of poetry’s diversity
Returning for its second iteration, Poetry Month, held each year in August and produced by Red Room Poetry, is a celebration of Australian poets and the diversity of poetry across the nation.
It continues with the 30in30 program, consisting of a specially commissioned poem released and performed each day in August from 30 different contributors. The National Poetry Gala will also make its debut in Sydney while curated poetry events are planned in every state and territory.
Tamryn Bennett, Director of Red Room Poetry says: ‘Since launching this audacious initiative in 2021, Red Room Poetry will again be a bright lantern for all Australians to engage with poetry and celebrate everything that poetry is and might be.
‘From the written page to performance poetry and everything in-between, Poetry Month is a place for creative expression and language that connects us all.’
