What a big finish for a huge year at Words Out Loud!

The November edition welcomed a feature presentation by 15 writers from the Weathering the Future art exhibition (at Ballarat’s Backspace Gallery in December), and it set the scene for a cracking night of spoken word.

Nineteen performers took the stage, including former Ballarat wordsmith Andrew Sutherland, in from Shanghai. Audio from the night will be uploaded in coming weeks.

Thanks to everyone who has supported the event throughout the year, whether as performer or audience. We’ve found a happy home at the Printers Room and we appreciate the support of Nigel and his crew in making the event such a success. Enjoy your summer break — and get those words ready for next year!

Words Out Loud returns in January at the Printers Room, every third Thursday barring December. Advance notice: the theme for 17 January is ‘summer sizzlers’ for those who like to play along. It’s gonna be hot!
