WordinHand is only the latest incarnation of poetry and spoken word at The Friend in Hand in Glebe. The venue has been a significant cultural home for poetry and performed spoken word in Sydney for over a decade, thanks to Mick Byrne and the Byrne family’s continuing commitment to the form, providing the upper room and attended bar every month.
Many of Sydney’s and Australia’s best- (and less-well) -known poets have appeared on our stage. These are community nights. With 5 open mike segments and a Slam of 8, plus 1 or 2 featured poets, there is at least a baker’s dozen of voices every month giving us the words and the stories of their lives, crafted for sharing with the world.
Donation $10/$5. Slam Prize $50.
