There will be limited open-mike (2-minutes maximum). No preamble please in order to maximise the poetry. It would help if you properly time your open-mike poem prior to the gig. We hope to have 15 or more open-mike slots if everyone co-operates. Also, first preference given to those that missed out on open-mike last year.

The venue is Moana Hall, 618 Hay Street Mall, Level 1   (just for this week)

A great place to be this Saturday afternoon 2pm-4pm.

Mc-ed by Christine Della Vedova, VIA ZOOM at Moana Hall with Festival Poets + open-mike.
