Whats On

Saturday 22nd June, Mega Open-mike event!

This Saturday 22nd June 2019 we have our second Mega Open-Mike event for the year.

Perth Poetry Club holds Mega Open-Mikes quarterly as an opportunity for every open-miker to be a feature with 5 minutes (maximum) of performance time.

Best to prepare your performance. Try something different, experimental. Edit and refresh your poems. Hone your performance skills.

Past events have been memorable for the quality of the poetry and performances.

Saturday 8th June, Biddle, Tony Walley, Julie Winther!

This Saturday 8th June we have the wonderful poets Biddle, Tony Walley, Julie Winther and open-mike at Perth Poetry Club.

Biddle has been performing since 14 and never really stopped. Known for gritty and honest poetry from a point of chosen naivety in their work, you'll most often find them at sporadic times in your life or by yelling their name into an oil spill three times. They have chapbooks, been in multiple zines, published on Uneven Floor, perfected the pavlova at 12, and currently own at least 13 traffic cones.
