That’s right, this Sunday is the big one… the event that has been building one ‘Call-Back-Poet’ at a time. At each monthly event, one poet was called back by the feature poets and now there are 8!
This Sunday November 4, these 8 poets – Jo Brooks, Carmen Leigh Keates, Marisa Allen, Andrew Phillips, Michael Cohen, Chloe Callistemon, Cameron Logan and Nicola Scholes – will take to the stage one last time to close the year, with one to be named ‘2012 SpeedPoets Open Mic Champion‘. And let’s not forget, there is $300 in cash up for grabs… so without a doubt each of the poets will be bringing the fire.
And to add to this mini festival of words, winner of the 2012 Dorothy Porter Poetry Prize, Stuart Cooke, will hit the mic to read his winning poem. And let’s face it, it wouldn’t be SpeedPoets without the guitar roar of Sheish and Giselle, our poetry raffle and the free monthly zine.
Yes, it’s going to be massive!
So make sure you are there to get your last shot of ‘SpeedPoets’ for the year and to find out what changes are ahead in 2013!
