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 12 or more open-mike slots if everyone co-operates.  Also first preference given to those that missed out on open-mike last year.

A great place to be this Saturday afternoon 2pm-4pm at The Moon Cafe, 323 William Street Northbridge.

Please be on time for a 2pm start, so that all can enjoy the Festival...
