Words Out Loud returns to Babushka lounge in Ballarat on Thursday, June 16, 7-9pm, for its next session of spoken word.
Writers, readers, poets — all word lovin’ folks with a hankering to share the love are invited along, with five-minute open mic spots on offer. Babushka has excellent sound and backing tracks can be accommodated. You won’t find a friendlier venue.
In a nod to our federal election in July, the June event has a nominal theme of “be heard”, but as always, performers are encouraged to take the theme and run with it for their 5-minute slots — or ignore it altogether!
Entry is free, though a gold coin donation would be appreciated for this non-profit, community event.
Keep up to date at the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/wordsoutloud/.
NOTE: The July Words Out Loud will be on the second Wednesday of the month due to a schedule clash — mark the calendar for July 14 (the theme, riffing off the winter dark, will be “light it up”).
