SpeedPoets this Saturday!

SpeedPoets

That’s right folks… if you are anywhere near the great city of Brisbane this Saturday, get along to one of its best kept secrets, The Hideaway (188 Brunswick St. Fortitude Valley) for the June installment of SpeedPoets. We will be throwing open the doors at 1:30pm with feature sets from Melbourne-based spoken word innovator, Santo Cazzati and rock legend, Kellie Lloyd (ex-Screamfeeder).

And of course, you can secure your place on stage by signing on for the Open Mic. All readers are automatically in the running to take out the coveted title of Call-Back-Poet. What does this mean? Well it means you will be invited up on stage to read a poem to close the day and be offered a feature reading at the last gig of the year in November, where each poet is up for the title of SpeedPoets Open Mic Champion 2013, $200 cash and a zine of your work published and launched at the February 2014 event. Sound good! I think so…

To check out all of this year’s Call-Back-Poets and listen to work from this month’s features visit the SpeedPoets website. And most importantly, get along and support Brisbane’s longest running monthly poetry gig this Saturday! And hey, if you can, give it a shout to your networks… here’s the Facebook link.

Date: Saturday June 29
Venue: The Hideaway, 188 Brunswick St Fortitude Valley
Time: 1:30pm – 5:00pm
