The School

Word Travels is the International Performing Writers' Association. As a not for profit arts organisation, they organise literary and literacy programs for festivals, private companies, libraries, schools and cultural institutions around the Asia Pacific with a focus on developing performing writers.

The Project

Red Room Poetry partners with Word Travels' Story-Fest (youth day program).

Story-Fest is a 5 day spoken word festival packed full of live literary mayhem in the form of spoken-word, poetry, stories, lyrics and monologues. Held annually in October by Word Travels, the event consists of a variety of workshops, poetry slams, discussion panels and comedy acts culminating in the Australian Poetry Slam National Final at Sydney Opera House.
