Ezpisode 5: Ezcapades feat. Ms Millie’s Pop-Up Poetry Cafe (Jay Jay x Tom x Sharifa)


Ez interviews Jehnet Kaya, founder of Ms Millie’s Pop-Up Poetry Cafe in Brunswick, just off Sydney Road. Her dimly lit space draws the audience close with Persian rugs lining the floor, warm tea lights and lamps glowing around the room and delicious homebaked sweets served during intermission. Jay Jay provides a space once a month for both amateurs and seasoned poets to get up and recite or perform their own original works. Tom and Sharifa are regulars at this spot, performing comedy prose and poetry.
