In this casual, question-focused workshop, Benjamin Solah, Director of Melbourne Spoken Word, looks at the process of being booked for gigs and going on tour. Through their work with Melbourne Spoken Word and Slamalamadingdong, they’ve toured many international and interstate poets, and through going to the US National Poetry Slam in 2017 and 2018, has toured in four US states. We’ll look at the best way to approach and be approached for bookings, the best way to put yourself in a position to be booked and be accepted, through building a profile and engaging with the spoken word community.
