Do you want to know more about the publishing industry and learn how to get your submissions noticed? Of course you do.
A Saturday afternoon seems like a strange time for poets to come out and speak, but the Visible Ink team’s fears were assuaged by the great turnout for our spoken word event, Visible Ink presents ‘The Spoken Word’—obviously we’re a very creative bunch when it comes to naming. Continue reading
Spoken word. Poetry slam. Open mic.
We’re throwing an event for the lovers of the ancient-cum-hip oral art. Words written for performing aloud, tantalising the ear and moving us in the moment.
We’ll have two featured poets, but for those keen to take the floor we have twelve slots for the open mic with registrations at the door.
3 – 6pm Saturday – May 28th
Compass Pizza – 319 Lygon St, Brunswick East
This is a great opportunity to get out in the community and meet likeminded folks and to listen to new and old performers alike.
All are welcome.
Please be aware that there is a $5 door charge for this event.
Our first Visible Ink event for 2016 was a raging success last Thursday at the Queensberry Hotel. Our intention was to launch the opening of submissions for this year’s Pushing Boundaries edition, to mingle with fellow writers and visual artists and, for the students amongst us, to get to know each other outside of the classroom.

It’s been a big week for VI and it’s not over yet. Tomorrow our submissions open for the 2016 edition of Visible Ink and we’ve broadened our content to include interviews submissions and plenty more. There’s not much that we won’t accept in our Pushing Boundaries edition.
It is with pleasure that the Visible Ink Collective for 2016 announce that the theme for this year’s edition is:
What is a boundary? Is it a barbed wire fence, or a lake between mountains? Could it be disability, prejudice, sexuality or education? What makes people want to push boundaries? Can boundaries also be stretched in the way technology is used to create visual art?
If you’re an emerging writer, artist or photographer with something to say we’d like to hear from you. Submissions open on Thursday the 28th of April.
