Welcome to ‘unLISTED’

We get a lot of requests from poets, perfomance groups, fellow organisations and artists from all levels to share and promote their events. It’s not possible to support all of you and a lot of requests don’t quite fit under the small umbrella that is spoken word.

We’re been working for a while now on our ‘notice board’ to give you a place to share everything that is happening. Whether it’s a poetry launch, a performance poetry theatre show, or a local open mic – get it on the board. This is a place for everything otherwise unlisted.

Below you’ll find submitted events and opportunities from the poetry and spoken word scene.
