Ink & Echo: Monthly Poetry Meetup
Sat Dec 16 2023 at 05:00 pm to 07:00 pm
Centre for Stories | Perth, WA
AdvertisementWelcome to the final Ink & Echo of 2023. This is our monthly Saturday evening sanctuary for poetic exploration and expression! Half workshop and half reading, this two-hour-long event is designed to enrich your poetic craft while offering a stage for your voice to be heard. Whether you’re a seasoned poet or picking up the pen for the first time, Ink & Echo offers you a warm, inclusive space. What’s more? Each month features a unique theme, inspiring you to dive deeper into different facets of poetry.
The first hour of Ink & Echo is a workshop tailored to ignite your creative spirit. Guided by author and poet SoulReserve (Lakesong), you’ll dive into writing exercises, learn about different poetic forms, and explore techniques to make your words resonate. This is a safe space to practice, make mistakes, and grow, all while enjoying the thrill of immediate and constructive feedback from your fellow poets.
The second hour opens the floor to you! Step up to the stage and share your freshly minted verses or read from your stash of treasured poems. It’s an intimate, encouraging environment where every voice is celebrated. Each reading segment aligns with the month’s theme, offering a cohesive and engaging experience for readers and listeners alike.
The theme for this month’s event will be “On Another Shore: cross the boundaries of distance and circumstance and explore the idea that ‘family’ bonds are not limited by blood or geography…” Remember: if you have already written poems that fit this theme that you would like to share, bring them along to read them out in front of the group.
Tickets are pay-what-you-feel and start at $15. Scroll down to RSVP and buy one of our tickets.
