Whats On

Thank you for 2022

Thank you everyone at Perth Poetry Club for 2022.

It certainly was an continuing year of poetry, COVID-19 and Zoom.

Thank you to our 1,800+ audience, 800+ open-mikers, and 70+ features during the year, who helped deliver over 2,200 poems

The 70+ features do not include the following multiple features and ad hoc events we had:

     Young Poets Festival Gig (3No.) in September Thanks to Veronica Lake, Zac Cawdron and WA Poets Inc

Saturday 10th December, Mega Open-mike event, at The Moon, on Zoom!

This Saturday 10th December we have our last gig of the year as a Mega Open-mike event, VIA ZOOM and at THE MOON CAFÉ.

Perth Poetry Club holds Mega Open-mike events 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.
