Welcome to the #WhereYouAreFestival That Poetry Thing, your weekly fix of poetry and spoken word, coming to you every Monday night right where you are, via Zoom, and live from the stage at Smith’s Alternative in Civic.
Featuring the best of ACT and interstate poetry talent, plus a chance to perform your own poems on the open mic. On Monday 10 August we welcome best-selling Melbourne poet and performer Koraly Dimitiradis as our featured poet.
Koraly joins us via Zoom to read from her poetry collections Just Give Me The Pills, Love and F*ck Poems, and also some newer work. Koraly will be ‘on the big screen’ at Smith’s, for a select COVID-safe crowd of 20.
The rest of the audience can watch along on Zoom. Includes an extended open mic section, for both live attendees and Zoom attendees.
