Poetry and Spoken Word Workshop


Event Status

Do you know a budding poet, who doesn’t know it or – better still – one who does know it and wants to learn more?

At this workshop, kids will get the chance to learn some of the basics of poetry and spoken word from Melbourne spoken-word artist and aficionado Abdul Hammoud.
