Join Melbourne Spoken Word Director, Benjamin Solah, for a 2-hour workshop and discussion for spoken word artists aimed at those wanting to get booked for feature gigs, and touring their performances. Do you want to perform and be paid? Do you want to take your work beyond Melbourne? What’s the best way to do this that is professional and in a manner that’s not just beneficial for yourself but for the wider spoken word scene?

Benjamin Solah is a spoken word artist and Director of Melbourne Spoken Word. He’s been performing since 2010 and has featured at a number of regular spoken word events, hosted touring poets from around the world, and in 2017, toured Texas as part of the first ever National Poetry Slam team from Australia.

Hosted at Siteworks in Brunswick, the workshop will be held on the 1st floor in Workroom 7.

Tickets are $20. Bookings are essential.

It’s all ages and an alcohol-free space. Please advise if you have any accessibility requirements.
