Tickets available now

Two ways to get a ticket:

1. Regular Ticket

For day passes (Saturday or Sunday) and unwaged tickets. Can’t make it to both days? Get a Saturday or Sunday-only ticket. Full festival passes and Sunday evening tickets are also available here, but they come without the extra benefits.

Buy Tickets

2. Crowdfunding Donation

For full festival passes and tickets to Sunday evening’s performance. Tickets by a sliding scale donation. This is cheaper than the cost of tickets at the door.

All donations get you our undying gratitude, plus some things like: books, artist anthologies, t-shirts, tickets to two fantastic literary nights (Word in Hand and Little Fictions), a nude dinner party, or even a new poem commission for one of the festival artists.

All donations up until midnight on Friday the 12th of May will also go in the running to win some gifts from our local friends in poetry and life:

  • Gasoline Pony gift certificate: Drinks and/or food thanks to Marrickville’s Gasoline Pony, a bar full of local music and local produce. (value: one $70 voucher and one $40 voucher)
  • Candy Royalle pack: Three modes of stories from Sydney’s outstanding storyteller, Candy Royalle: a CD, book, and T-shirt. (RRP: $70)
  • Spineless Wonders pack: Hours of new fringe Australian writing. The Last Wilkie’s & other stories (by Jon Steiner), Panthers and the Museum of Fire (by Jen Craig) and Loopholes (by Susan McCreery). (RRP: $70)

  • Gold Foil Gift: Two unique gold-foiled paper craft objects from festival artist Fayroze Lutta: a postcard (made on recycled paper), and a Nuns poster print (A4). Fayroze will be running a gold-foil haiku postcard workshop at the festival. Her work featured at the MCA Zine Fair 2016. (value: $15, 10 available)

  • Is This Not Delightful: A rare zine made by festival artist Margarita Tenser, a cat-botherer who loves puns and comic books and is a little worried they might be a poet.

Using the crowdfunding campaign is the cheapest way you can get a festival ticket, and also the nicest way you can support us at the moment 🙂

Thank you to our wonderful supporters. This couldn’t happen without you.
