Word Travels is a not-for-profit arts association that organises literary and literacy programs with libraries, schools, festivals, private companies and cultural institutions.
We are incorporated as The International Performing Writers' Association.
We believe that spoken-word artists, poets, hip hop artists, story tellers and monologists can develop an industry equal to that of actors, musicians and writers.
Our vision is to improve lives through great writing, powerfully performed.
We develop, organise and host wordshops and events around Australia with a focus on developing new writers in both urban and regional areas. Our largest program is Australian Poetry Slam. The APS reaches out to writers across Australia and inspires them to perform in an international competition. The Slam touches rural and urban communities, inspiring a love of poetry and catapulting spoken word artists onto the international scene.
