Poetry Sydney is an independent literary organisation committed to a presence for poetry in our culture.

Poets at the Petersham Bowlo

Open Mic soirée: poems, short stories, comedy, acoustic music held on the 3rd Thursday of the month.  A friendly, encouraging ethos and atmosphere. All types of poetry welcome in two sessions, sometimes with musical performance, with 20 minutes intermission; 5 mins per person in each session. Performance poets can request extension of time if practicing for an upcoming show. We publish an annual anthology: anyone who has presented original material in that year is welcome to submit work. We have a table for the sale of books (all proceeds go to the author).
