Get in early to book your tickets: this event usually sells out quickly!
Our guest performer for the evening is the incredibly talented MANAL YOUNUS, an Australian based freelance storyteller. The young writer and spoken word artist uses her poetry to both discover and strengthen her identity as well as to spark thought and discussions amongst those around her. Manal facilitates writing and performance workshops in schools, community groups and professional environments to encourage others to develop their own voices. Since making the Australian Poetry Slam National Finals in 2013, Manal no longer competes in slams but has gone on to perform around the country including at The Sydney Opera House. In 2015, Manal released her first book of poetry called ‘Reap’ and launched it with a national tour with official launches in Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth and feature performances in Queensland and New South Wales. In 2016, Manal represented Australia at the Georgetown Literary Festival in Penang, Malaysia.
