SpeedPoets is a community of writers, engaging people with poetry in a very public forum – Brew, Lower Burnett Lane, Brisbane. It is a space for artists to meet, perform and establish networks within their local community.
There is nothing that specifically defines SpeedPoets. It is what it is – a creative space where many of Brisbane’s finest poets/spoken word artists experiment with words backed by poetic riff-maker, Sheish Money.
The gig is held on the first Saturday of the month and runs from March to November each year. Each month there is Open Mic, a feature poet and singer/songwriter, a mini-feature by the Call Back Poet, Free Zines and other giveaways. The gig runs from 2pm to 5:30pm and entry is a gold coin donation.
