Event description

Description

JOIN US FOR A SPOOKY SLAM THIS OCTOBER!

Halloween costumes and spooky poetry encouraged

A poetry slam is an opportunity for ANYBODY to share something they've written in front of a live and engaged audience! It doesn't have to be a "poem" - any kind of story, rap or rant is acceptable!



DOORS - 6:30PM
SLAM - 7:00PM

POETRY SLAM RULES:

  • 3 minute time limit
  • All original work
  • Props and costumes allowed this month only!
  • No background music (singing and a capella are ok)

And YOU - the audience - get to judge! Judges are selected randomly on the night. The top scoring poets get a special SPOOKY prize!

If you'd like to receive feedback on your work prior to the slam, come along to our workshop on October 8th. Limited spots available - reserve yours here!

We acknowledge the Dhawaral people, the traditional owners of the land upon which we gather, and pay our respects to the stories that were here for thousands of years before our own.
