Looking ahead

Welcome to 2021!

We are monitoring the Victorian Government’s advice on the requirements for live entertainment and are on the lookout for a suitable venue in Ballarat. We are also considering changes to the WOL model that might facilitate a return to some kind of live gig, but are adamant the event be as inclusive and accessible as possible.

We expect to have signs of life soon – watch this space!

We’ll keep updating our Facebook page with interesting opportunities and news for writers, and encourage you to keep an eye on Melbourne Spoken Word, where gigs are happening in the virtual space.

Indigenous Literacy Day online

While we’re waiting to see what social distancing restrictions will allow us to do for our Indigneous Literacy Foundation Big Book Swap in September, Indigenous Literacy Day on 2 September is going online. Check in if you’re able — Jessica Mauboy is performing and writerly guests include Alison Lester, Anita Heiss and Andy Griffiths.
