Saturday 1st September, Mega Open-Mike!

This Saturday 1st September 2018 is our third Mega Open-Mike Event for the year where everyone is a feature at Perth Poetry Club.

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.
