FSP City Meetings move to the Box Factory

Following a vote at the Special General Meeting of FSP on Tuesday 7th February, FSP City Open Mic meetings will be held at the Box Factory, Regent Street, Adelaide (off Halifax Street) for the rest of 2017. The vote was 2:1 in favour of moving from the SA Writers’ Centre. However, this means that the FSP City Open Mic meetings can no longer be held on Tuesday evenings.

The next meeting will be on 10th March, at the Box Factory. More details soon!
