WOL does Smythesdale

Thanks to the efforts of our regular campaigner Megan J Riedl, Words Out Loud is participating in the Smythesdale Fiesta on Sunday 7 February.

Starting at 2pm in the Old Courthouse in Brooke Street, the event will feature Megan with special guests including fellow WOL regulars Fraser Mackay and Zoe Werner, and we will have some 5-minute open mic opportunities available.

Please contact us if you’re interested in sharing poetry or spoken word at the event. 

We attended a spoken word event at the Fiesta in 2019 and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the town of Smythesdale, so we’re chuffed to have this opportunity. We hope to see some familiar faces!

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.
