It’s May 2018 and a tiny laneway in Collingwood is abuzz. There’s a murmur in the air, wine is flowing and a very special night of poetry readings and spoken word performances is in full swing.

Presented by Going Down Swinging in partnership with the inaugural Melbourne Spoken Word & Poetry Festival, In Full Swing was a warehouse poetry party hosted at Rokeby Studios. We’re excited to share footage of two of the evening’s performances: Fury’s ‘Love or I Want To Know What Love Is’ and Andy Jackson’s ‘Ghazal of Roots’.


Like what you hear? We’re proud to be partnering once again with Melbourne Spoken Word to bring you Spoken Like a Champion, a poetry game show like nothing you’ve seen (or heard) before. Grab your tickets now, and we’ll see you at Brunswick Mechanics Institute on Friday 26 July.
