The lowercase trio have been running their open mic night, performing and facilitating workshops around Geelong for a number of years now, and are excited to bring what they do & love to the Surf Coast community.

Poets of all genres & experience levels are invited to share on the theme “distill”, or any of their original work.

Join us for a night of original poems & delicious local gin. Sign up on the night to share, or just come to listen!

Words performed from 7-9pm, with 2 or 3 drink breaks in between.
