Distinctly different to other poetry nights in Melbourne, 'We Run With Wolves' (WRWW) champions diverse female voices, particularly from women of colour and other marginalized voices in our community. We curate a warm, open and inclusive space for all to come and be inspired by these shared narratives. The space we emerge from is also queer and trans positive.
Since March this year, we have been packing out WRWW nights at The Toff in Town, for audiences hungry for unapologetic brave voices from multi-dimensional perspectives.
For the Fringe, we are putting on two shows (25th Sep and 2nd Oct) featuring some of Australia's most dynamic performance poets including Candy Royalle, Manal Younus, Candice Monique, Ee'da Brahim, Michelle Dabrowksi, Arielle Cottingham, Noelani Chotes, Tasneem Chopra, Tariro Mavondo, Emilie Zoe Baker, Amal Ibrahim and special guests. This is narrative medicine -poetry as source of transformation, inspiration, celebration and peer education of various social and political issues.

"All the women who stood upon that stage blew me away with their passion and vulnerability, their truth and their power." - Fleassy Malay, Producer 'Mother Tongue'
"I was wholly moved and educated and inspired, time after time.' - Rowan White
