Join a free program of poetry, music and performance at Fed Square.
Each month a different poets present their new works in a public setting to an ever-changing audience. It is an opportunity to hear new words and voices.
Readers and presenters come from all walks of literary life; some are published authors; some are translators; some are first-time authors with a piece of work in progress to test; while others will read/present a bilingual writing of another author. Over the years more than 1000 different poets, translators and open readers have participated in the program.
The regular format allows for two feature presenters, reading up to 20 minutes each. Then up to 10 readers can follow in either English or other languages for 5 minutes each.
The program is supported by Fed Square and World Poetry, which is a movement founded in 2004 under the auspices of Multicultural Arts Victoria.
World Poetry's principal objectives is to foster and sustain an invigorating and inclusive climate for dialogue.
