Showcases live, online and in between

As part of Poetry Month, we're presenting a full menu of showcase events packed with poetic delights. This includes the return of the National Poetry Month Gala in Sydney, the Victorian Poetry Month Gala, and showcases in all other states and territories including our first in Darwin and Byron. Most live events are free or low cost to attend. All showcases highlight the amazing range of poets and spoken word artists we have across this country, alongside special guests.

Some of these showcases will also be live streamed (please check individual event listings.)
