the world needs to hear
your unique voice


Hi there!

If you are a female or gender diverse poet or spoken word artist looking to create and connect, you've come to the right place.

I founded Girls on Key Poetry in 2014 to create opportunities for you to write and share your work in safe, inclusive and like-minded communities.

I look forward to supporting you on your creative journey.

Anna Forsyth,

Founder , Poet & Editor


Inclusivity Statement – Creating an environment of access and safety

Acknowledgement of Country

Girls on Key acknowledges the First Nations of Australia: the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We host events on the lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation and the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation (Sydney and Melbourne - Narrm) on whose unceded lands we conduct our events. We have also hosted past events on the lands of the Awabakal and Worimi peoples (Newcastle) and on Dharawal Country (Wollongong).

Girls on Key respectfully acknowledges their Ancestors and Elders, past and present. Girls on Key also acknowledges the Traditional Custodians and their Ancestors of the lands and waters across Australia where we conduct our business. 

We value inclusion and diversity, where all people feel safe to participate and contribute fully to artistic and cultural life, such as our poetry readings and publishing.

There are communities who continue to experience disadvantage, including the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, culturally and linguistically diverse, people of diverse bodies, genders and sexualities and people with disabilities.

We believe that access and inclusion are fundamental to any arts organisation working and creating in Australia.

As leaders in the Australian poetry publishing and events space, we commit to taking action to create a safe and equitable environment for everyone.
