Australian Poetry Slam

Imagine two minutes in the spotlight. No props. No music. Judged by the audience. Just you…and your story.

Gemma Boyd – SA National Finalist 2012

I would tell you about my background in writing, performance, music and the groups and foundations I’m a part of, but then I would be lying, because I don’t have a background in any of that. But what is true is that my name is Gemma Boyd I’m a 22 year old Adelaidian. And I love spoken word poetry.  I hope you do too.

This is my first time entering the Australian Poetry Slam, and so far so good. When I’m not writing, I’m working in my basement vintage-filled shop, where I sometimes hold poetry nights and art exhibitions.  Maybe you could describe me as a poet for the non-poets… or not… I don’t know.
