Event description

Description

Speak, scream, howl, whisper or sing your original poetry, stories, lyrics or monologues in the new Rockdale Library on Saturday 15 September 2018.

Register at 1.30pm on the day to perform, and the heats start at 2pm. Everyone is welcome to have a try – all you need is your voice and an original work. And you have two minutes to impress.

In this fun and exciting event the audience is the judge.

Hosting this event is Jesse Oliver, the current Australian Adult Poetry Slam Champion

Two writers from the Rockdale Poetry Slam Heat are chosen to perform at the NSW State Final in Sydney in mid-October. Then two spoken wordsmiths from each state and territory head to the Australian Poetry Slam National Final the following day.

The ultimate prize? An international tour worth $10k. The Australian Poetry Slam Champion performs throughout 2019 at Byron Writers Festival, Ubud Writers & Readers Festival, Singapore Writers Festival and Hong Kong International Literary Festival. They also receive publication with Pitt Street Poetry and a writers’ residency in the NSW Southern Highlands with Bundanon Trust.

If you want to be in the cheering, raucous, finger snapping poetry loving audience, then come along to our slam:
