What happens in a workshop?

  • In 2018, for the first time, competing schools are strongly encouraged to visit the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria in Melbourne CBD or Cranbourne for an exciting on-site workshop with a contemporary Australian poet. Alternatively, you can book a poet to visit your school. Visiting poets will conduct a 90 min workshop with a maximum of 30 students. Students will create, write, perform and choreograph a two-minute poem for performance in a mini slam at the end of the session.

Australian Poetry offers a $100 subsidy for each workshop for schools registered for the OutLoud 2018 competition to reduce outlay for participating schools.
