Cross Flow

Word Travels brings you live literary events as part of Sydney Writers’ Festival 2014. Discover poetry and puppetry under an umbrella, philosophize with verse in an intellectual salon, scream and applaud your love spoken word at the festival club and the Rumble Youth Slam. Keep your eyes, ears and minds open as #CrossFlow poets perform guerilla-style and upload videos to Sydney Writers Festival’s social media.


Thursday 22 May – Sunday 25 May,

Cost: FREE

Location: Anytime / Anywhere

Poets and Story-tellers perform guerilla-style across Walsh Bay, The Rocks and Circular Quay. A poet may be standing right next to you on the ferry about to belt out a verse. A story-teller might engage you while you wait for a latte. Locations will be random and spontaneous.

Featuring: Onur Ka, Elizabeth Dakash, Belinda Lopez, Zohab Zee Khan and Jesse John Brand. Click on the photos bio to learn more about our #CrossFlow poets
