Writers Contest & Cup

The 2017 Sydney Road Writer’s Contest and Cup was a warm and welcome break from the chilly winter work-week. On Thursday August 24th more than twenty-five poets  and storytellers took to the stage at Edinburgh Castle Hotel to share their creative talents to an enthralled audience. The jam-packed event included touching biographical performances, fantastical recitals, and absurdly funny routines. Newcomers to spoken word had the chance to mingle with some of the community’s veteran performers, and take their first shot at the special cup alongside yearly competitors, all within a cheerful environment.
