Join us for an evening of powerful words. A poetry showcase celebrating the rich cultural tapestry and experience of Brown and South Asian Women poets.

Whether you’re a poetry enthusiast or want to support the talent of these women, this event is an opportunity to connect with the community and celebrate cultural diversity.

Taking place in Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane during South Asian Heritage Month.

Two workshops are part of this series taking place in Melbourne: whether you’ve been told you’re too loud or too quiet, this is the workshop for you. If you’ve ever wanted to get your trauma onto paper and make something powerful with it in a safe space, your time is now! P.s. poetry can also be funny, romantic, sciencey, and a lot more things.

P.s. if you’re the type of child growing up that day dreamed a lot and miss reflecting freely, you’re in the right place. But, also if you’re the kind of daughter that makes the best kind of ‘worst dinner guest’ at family gatherings, you’re also, miraculously, in the right place!
