Words Out Loud Ballarat looks to the winter solstice for inspiration. As the longest night falls, poets, writers and storytellers gather to celebrate poetry, prose and good yarns in the warm and welcoming surrounds of The Printers Room.

The theme for the evening is “Out of the night”, but it is not compulsory.
Enjoy a two-course meal deal or something else from the full menu, share your writing or a selection from a favourite piece of work, or simply enjoy the efforts of your fellow word lovers.
Free, gold coin donation appreciated. Lucky door prize.
Words Out Loud is on June 21, 7-9pm, at The Printers Room underneath Sebastiaans cafe, cnr Mair and Lydiard streets (enter from Mair).
