Words Out Loud is ‘breaking the ice’ at its August edition.
Wordsmiths are invited to explore the theme or simply ignore it altogether.
This is a great opportunity to road test new material, celebrate a success or share some inspiration, or simply enjoy a diverse range of spoken word — poetry, prose or storytelling; read or recited; your own work or someone else’s. Performances are limited to 5 minutes each. Sign up on the night.
Date: Thursday August 15
Time: Doors open about 6.30pm, words from 7pm
Venue: The Printers Room, in the basement of Sebastiaans at the corner of Mair and Lydiard streets. Enter from Mair. Note: the venue is stair-free. Take in the air in the beer garden. Enjoy the show from couches, the tables or a seat by the bar.
Eat and drink: The full menu is available, as well as a $20 two-course meal deal, with bar service.
Cost: Free, with a gold coin donation appreciated.
