Jason Nahrung (MC, Ballarat)
Rhonda Poholke (Beaufort)

Now that the official program is out, we are pleased to announce that Words Out Loud will be appearing at Clunes Booktown festival!
Performers from the Ballarat region (and one ring-in, who has graced our stage before) will be sharing short pieces of poetry, fiction and memoir in a free event at the Petanque Stage on Sunday 5 May, 10-11am.

Not a bad way to start off your morning before some serious book browsing and partaking of literary inspiration!
And if you’re at Booktown on the Saturday, 4 May, keep an eye out for WOL co-convenor Kirstyn McDermott, sharing insights about Victoria as a state of writing with Tony Birch, Alicia Sometimes, Josh Pomare and chair Michelle Scott-Tucker. That’s a ticketed event in the Town Hall at 2.30pm.
