About this Event

Tell your story and stay connected during this age of social distancing!

2020 Australian Poetry Slam events will be held online via Zoom, transforming the honesty and energy of the usual live performances into a virtual package and delivering it straight to your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Register in advance of the event to participate or cheer along! Please make sure to select the right ticket type: 'audience registration' or 'performer registration' in the next screen.

From July to October, APS heats and workshops will connect storytellers across the nation, leading to eight State Finals and the National Final.

Are you the next Australian Poetry Slam Champion?

Poets have two minutes to perform their original work; no props, no costumes, no music. Judges are randomly chosen from the online audience. The two highest scoring poets will go on to represent the Blue Mountains in the APS Western Sydney Final.

In the interests of maintaining fairness, poets must perform in their local heat to be eligible. Please get in touch with Blue Mountains Library if you want to discuss your eligibility. Read the full 2020 APS rules here.

Word Travels and the Australian Poetry Slam acknowledge that we work, live and tell stories on unceded Indigenous land. We pay respect to their elders past, present and emerging. Always was First Nations land. Always will be.
