We are thrilled to welcome Joelle Taylor with a group of regional poets for an online celebration of Queer Narratives. Presented by The Bunker Spoken Word and Poets Out Loud, this very special online event will also include a short open mic.


Having made her name on the stage as one of the UK’s best slam poets, Joelle Taylor’s recent publication C+nto and Othered Poems was the recipient of the TS Eliot Poetry Prize. She will be heading to Australian shores throughout March for workshops and appearances at Adelaide Writers Week and The Wheeler Centre, Melbourne.


Exploring butch counterculture, her writing is raw and riotous, an ode to love and belonging and expressing oneself authentically.


We invite you to share in the magic of her storytelling in this special event for the online poetry loving community. Presenting with her will be 10 of Australia’s emerging queer voices. This is an online night to lift the spirit, tap into your inner rebel and ignite the flames of your soul.


Tickets by donation ($0 / $5 / $10 / $20) with all proceeds to Lismore Flood Fundraiser for Queer Community.

BOOK TICKETS NOW   (Zoom link will be sent to your email.)

This event is supported by the UK/Australia Season Patrons, the British Council and the Australian Government as part of the UK/Australia Season.
