Workshops for every poet, everywhere

As part of Poetry Month we're presenting weekly workshops during August for all poets at all levels to access online from anywhere in Australia. This year’s workshops cover stripping poetry back, breath and beatboxing, the intersection of poetry and comedy, and a special older emerging voices workshop.

Running every Wednesday night online via Zoom across August 2021. All are welcome to book in for any or all of the workshops. Limited places available. Suggested donation of $10 per workshop.
