SpeedPoets Calls Back Marisa Allen

Each month at SpeedPoets, thirty poets are given the opportunity to sign up for Open Mic and at the end of the day, one of these poets is called-back by the monthly features to perform a short set to close the event. In May, that poet was Brisbane based singer-songwriter-poet, Marisa Allen. I just posted her poem and bio on the SpeedPoets website, so be sure to click on over.

And to give you all a taste of her musical prowess, here she is performing Nerve Child live for Balcony TV. Such a voice!

SpeedPoets takes over Brew again on Saturday June 2 and features Julie Beveridge premiering work from her new collection, home{sic} and the launch of Alan Jefferies‘ new book, Seem.

When: Saturday June 2, 2pm – 5:30pm
Where: Brew (Lower Burnett Lane, Brisbane City)
Entry: Gold Coin Donation
