La Mama Poetica

La Mama presented poetry for the first time in 1967 with Glen Tomesetti and Kris Hemmensley. Following these wonderful events, Mal Morgan began to organise La Mama Poetica nights which took place every five weeks. Now curated by Amanda AnastasiLa Mama Poetica remains a night of some of the best spoken word and poetry that Melbourne has to offer, with a diverse selection of both emerging and established poets.
