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

Laurel May – NT (Central Australia) National Finalist 2012

Laurie May has been writing poetry since she was a kid in Brisbane and began performing while living in Darwin a few years ago. Her works/poems/slams are a distillation of her wide-ranging life and work experience from working and living in East Africa to her various anthropological studies with homeless Indigenous people in Darwin. Having left the ‘’croctastic’’ NT News with only one front page croc story, Laurie is currently working in Central Australia where her job takes her all over the desert. Laurie’s Indigenous background is on her father’s side and her mother is of New Zealand Pakeha descent. Laurie found her first grey hair at 21 and has been embracing each one ever since.
