Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Enthusiasts of the written word unite – this extravaganza will celebrate some of Australia's most promising new wordsmiths. The multi-talented Bedroom Philosopher will play host to a night of powerful readings as well as the announcement of the two winners of Australia’s premier writing awards. Don't miss the opportunity to hear from poet Derrick Brown, winner of the 2013 Texas Book of the Year. When all is said and done, kick on to the after party at the Kelvin Club.
